Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy
Flakes are mostly good: there's snowflakes, Cadbury Flakes, and the fish n' chip flake. Then there's flakey lips (not so good). Get rid of them in a jiffy and prime your lips for a smooth lipstick application with Kocostar's Peach Duo Duo! This 2-n-1 kit contains a creamy walnut and peach scrub to gently buff away dead skin cells. Meanwhile the oil-in-cream lip balm melts on contact with your skin to form a protective barrier that locks in moisture. And it comes in Kocostar's signature lip packaging (hella cute, it cannot be denied).
Kanvas Beauty is proud to be the official Australian stockist of Kocostar.
Anyone can be peachy keen for this!
Cleanse face and apply toner. Scoop up lip scrub with dotted side of the spatula. Apply to lips and wait for 3 minutes to soften dead skin cells.
