Pretty Trashy

Once you’ve twisted, rolled and squeezed the last bit of toothpaste, soap, shampoo and/or lipstick from its container, you can now “trash it” – in an environmentally-friendly fashion - thanks to TerraCycle’s new Beauty Brigade.

Just collect enough cosmetics/personal care containers to fill a shipping bag or box, print out a prepaid mailing label (or request one by mail) and drop it off at any UPS location. Your waste will then be repurposed or melted down into usable raw materials, rather than taking up space in your local landfill.

But, the best part is that for each and every item you send, you'll be credited two TerraCycle points, which can be redeemed for donations to a charity of your choosing. They accept almost every beauty bottle, jar, case, tube and dispenser you can think of, with the exception of hair spray, nail polish and nail polish remover containers. Those things are just plain hazardous.
