NEWS: Origins’ Earth Month – Trade-In Day

Origins the beauty and skincare brand is known for their use of Natural ingredients in their products and their GREEN commitment (helping the environment through the use of ethical, Earth and Animal friendly packaging, practices and policies).

Its that time again for Origins’ Earth Month, from 18th April to 24th April every skincare product bought from Origins, they will plant a Tree for Free.

In 2009 Origins started their Return to Origins recycling program, this was a first of its kind program in which you can bring any empty skincare and beauty containers, pots, jars and etc to ANY Origins counter, and it will be sent to a central location to be recycled or to be used for energy recovery.  Why? Well most cosmetic and beauty packaging is made from hard to recycle materials, not that it cannot be recycled  but that it is more difficult to, and with this program it just makes it easier than just throwing your empty containers away.

In an industry first, Origins will accept packaging from any cosmetic company regardless of the manufacturer. We believe that the more we collect from consumers, the more we can keep cosmetic packaging out of landfills. And we hope this program will encourage other companies into following our example.

The above quote from their website just sums up the program and whats makes it better is that they will accept any Brand!!

As a Bonus, Origins will also be treating everyone who takes part in the program to a complimentary full size moisturiser, either the ‘Starting Over age-erasing moisturiser’ or ‘A Perfect World SPF25 age-defense moisturiser’ (both worth over £30)

I must stress that this is a good cause program and not an opportunity to trade in some cheap arse cream you bought in the £1 shop, emptied and exchanged for a Origins product!!!!

So when does this take place? Saturday 21st April …… Where?? Any Origins counter.
