Origins make-up is offering a new program that seems to be designed specifically for the sophisticatedly green mom! They are the first in the make-up industry to offer such a green program and I am excited to support it. The Recycling program encourages consumers to bring in all of their empty cosmetic jars, packages, tubes, etc. - regardless of their brand - to any Origins counter. As a thank you, Origins will treat you to a FREE sample of your choice. The hope is that Origins will reduce the amount of waste in landfills (cosmetic packaging takes up approximately 1/3 of all landfill waste!) by sending your empty containers to a central location where they will be recycled or used for energy recovery.
