Want to go green in your salon? Sign up for TerraCycle, a free waste collection program for hard to recycle materials, like lipstick and mascara tubes, shampoo and conditioner bottles, shaving foam tubes, nail polish bottles, eyeliner cases and pencils, hair gel tubes and more!
TerraCycle then takes your trash and turns it into park benches, recyling bins, cutting boards and other useful items through a process that is more environmentally friendly than making these objects from scratch. This means less beauty products end up in a landfill!
Signing up for TerraCycle is easy. Once you get enough items to fill a collection box, TerraCycle gives you a pre-paid UPS label to ship it away. You also collect $0.02 for every piece of waste you send in, which is later given to a non-profit organization of your choice.
Start a collection program in your salon today and invite clients to bring in their waste as well!
