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
UpCircle Beauty - Night Cream with Niacinamide & Hyaluronic Acid - 55ml
There are so many reasons why we love UpCircle's unscented Night Cream with Niacinamide & Hyaluronic Acid. Firstly, it's rich in antioxidants and helps protect your skin against free radicals. Secondly, niacinamide gently brightens the skin, while hyaluronic acid plumps out fine lines. Thirdly, the formula contains a teeny amount of salicylic acid, to render skin soft and smooth. And if that's not enough, this product is also Certified Plastic Negative (i.e. its production process ensures it removes more plastic from the environment than it produces). Get you a night cream that does it all!
How this product has been upcycled:UpCircle uses quality repurposed blueberries, a natural source of antioxidants and a by-product of the juicing industry.
And here's what else you should know: All of UpCircle's products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free dermatologically approved and come in fully recyclable packaging.
