The moment your mascara starts clumping & flaking or your eye shadow starts crumbling, you know it's time to clear out your makeup bag. But, could your cosmetic packaging be harming your health? Yes it is harmful for your health & also for the
environment when people thoughtlessly trash packaging. Most of the time you can't recycle makeup containers, but you can recycle some of the containers or shop from brands that provide a recycling service.
It's estimated that only 12% of plastic is recycled in Australia, this is shameful. Safe Cosmetics Australia recycle refill campaign aims to promote brands that offer store drop-offs, recycling programs & bulk refills. Let's make a difference, together by raising the standards of manufacturing practices, waste & recycling. There is room for improvement.
