Return to Origins Recycling Program

By | September 2, 2009

OriginsRecycleLogo Origins is introducing the Return to Origins Recycling Program, which is the first recycling program of it’s kind in the cosmetic industry!

You can bring your empty cosmetic tubes, bottles, jars, etc. – regardless of brand – to your nearest Origins retail store or department store counter anywhere in the US. All returned packaging will be sent back to a central location where products will be recycled or used for energy recovery.

Origins will accept packaging from any cosmetic company regardless of the manufacturer, which is an industry first. Origins believe that the more they collect from consumers, the more they can keep cosmetic packaging out of landfills. And they hope this program will encourage other companies into following their example.

To thank you for joining Origins in their commitment to the environment, they’ll treat you to a FREE sample of your choice of one of Origins high-performance skincare products. Now you can’t beat that!

    That is great that origins is doing that. Just to inform everyone- MAC cosmetics also recycles all there cosmetic tubing and plastic containers. In fact, for every 6-8 ( not sure right now) containers you return to them, they give you a free lipstick.
