Our New Year's Resolution: Giving Back (It Never Looked So Good)

This year, we’re looking for new ways to give back. It already feels wasteful to throw away a compact or concealer tube, because you know there’s just a little more product left in there. Now, cosmetic companies are making it easy to recycle your empty concealer, tubes of mascara and pots of lip gloss you’ve amassed while experimenting with the latest and greatest beauty products.

Origins’ “Return to Origins” campaign accepts tubes, bottles and jars from any cosmetic company (not just their own), and they’ll give you a free Origins skincare sample as a thanks for chucking your empties in their in-store recycling bins.

• Collect six MAC cosmetic containers, return them to a MAC counter or online, and receive a full-sized MAC lipstick in your color of choice, courtesy of the “Back to MAC” program.

• Any rigid caps that display a 5 in the recycling triangle are eligible for collection at Aveda salons or cosmetic counters for their “Recycle Caps With Aveda” campaign.  Aveda will use the caps to make new ones for their products.

• Kiehl’s collect the containers that once held their paraben-free hair and skincare products. They don’t always offer incentives, but when they do, they’re awesome—like full-sized products in return for a few empty Kiehl’s bottles. Keep an eye on “Kiehl’s In The Community” for upcoming rewards programs, and in the meantime, don’t throw any empties out.

Put your best face forward this year with the help of our guides to the best mascara, concealers and fragrances.
