Where to Recycle Beauty Products

Now It's Even Easier to Recycle Your Beauty Products

Ever been confused as to how some of your multimaterial beauty products, such as lipstick and mirrored compacts, should be recycled? Fret no more. With TerraCycle, a company that specializes in recycling harder-to-recycle goods, the guesswork is taken out for you. With its Personal Care and Beauty Brigade program, which runs in conjunction with Garnier, you can feel good knowing that just about any product you're uncertain of will be accepted (except hair spray cans, polish remover, and nail polish bottles). Products are then upcycled to build eco-friendly playgrounds throughout the US. To find out more, just keep reading.

Even better, it's free to join the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade. For every approved item received, points are earned, which can then be applied towards charitable causes. And considering one-third of landfill waste is comprised of personal care and beauty products, it's great to know that you — along with your old mascara tubes, lip-liner pencils, and foundation bottles — are making a difference.
