EMPTIES - What do you do with yours? Collect free Deluxe Samples with your empties like i do!

Multimasker

 

Hi all,

 

I have a question for you, what do you do with your empties?

 

I go through a lot of products, this means a lot of plastic unfortunately.  There are a few brands out that that offer sample/travel products when you recycle your empties with them.

 

Origins - Concession stands

At Origins you can hand in and brand cosmetic packaging in return for a stamp on your recycling card.  Once you have 6 stamps you can pickup a deluxe sample (min. size 15ml).  I have picked up samples of the Plantscription serum 15ml, Glow Co Nuts mask 15ml and Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask 30ml.  You can only receive one stamp per visit.

Kiehls - Standalone Stores only

Recycle & Be rewarded Program is a newly launched program for Kiehls.  The empties must be from Kiehls but these can be full size and travel size items.  Once you have collected 10 stamps you can choose a travel sized item.  I have not filled a card yet, but I am glad that in the last month I happened to finish 4 items from Kiehls so still have the packaging ready to hand in to them.

I have contacted Kiehls in the past regarding there empty bottles/stamp system but never had a reply.

I did not know about the origins one though, thank you.

I had no idea about these!!!!

Just went around and asked, Kiehl's have it only for their products and Origins will take anything even empty samples, so I picked a card and 1 stamp from them Smiley Very Happy, they will be seeing me often for sure. Thank you so much for this! I've just been throwing things away, all the waste! I like knowing there is such a good recycling scheme Smiley Happy.

In regards to Kiehls it is only the Boutique (freestanding stores) that do this scheme and it only opened in the mast month or so I believe.

 

This month they are also giving a deluxe sample of the Ultra Facial Cream when u bring in any brand moisturiser empty, it only needs to be 1 empty product to get this sample.  Again this is only in Kiehls Boutiques (freestanding stores).

Didn't know about those. But you can also do:

- Mac: take 6 empties get a lipstick 

- Lush: take 5 empties get a small mask

ve heard about these type of schemes but never seen any. I think L'occitane doing something and I know Lush do something similar. I personally put all my plastic out for our kerbside recycling collection. x
