Beginning March 29, 2009, Origins is asking that you bring in any empty cosmetic “tubes, bottles and jars, etc.,” regardless of the brand or manufacturer, to any Origins store for recycling. In return, Origins will give you a sample of your choice of one of their high-performance skincare products.
I am always looking for new ways to recycle and this program sounds fabulous. I’m sure plenty of “tubes, bottles and jars” get disposed of each year when they could otherwise be recycled, so I applaud Origins for offering to recycle all of these items.
