Recycling Your Beauty Empties

Oil Divine was conceived around the idea of eliminating all aspects of toxins from the founder's life - from cleaning products to beauty products.  We are always mindful of the environment; the whole "do good, feel good, look good" has always been our mantra, and a highly recyclable package was another one of our priorities. 

We package every one of our oil blends in premium glass bottles, topped with a metal dropper and encased in an informative cardboard box.

Here are some ways to be more eco-conscious with your beauty empties: 

1. Get Familiar with Your Local Recycling Programs

The easiest way to get started is to get acquainted with your local recycling laws and programs to ensure that you follow the rules. 

Look for the universal recycling label on product packaging. If you see products with numbers 1 or 2 printed within the arrow, then they are actually safe to be in your recycling bins with kitchen and household products. 

2. Alternative Recycling Programs 

Not sure what to do with your empties? Brands such as L'Occitane, Josie Maran, Kopari, and Acure; retailers such as Credo Beauty and Nordstrom; and companies such as Unilever (Living Proof, Paula's Choice), P&G (Herbal Essences, Pantane), L'Oreal (Garnier, Maybelline), Clorox(Burt's Bees) are working with TerraCycle to enable consumers to process waste properly. 

3. Get Acquainted with Refillables & Purchase Sustainable Only 

The the easiest way to be more eco-friendly with your beauty routine is to purchase highly sustainably packaged products - Oil Divine's potent plant-based formulas were formulated to simplify your beauty routine without compromising on visible results, our glass, metal, and paper packagings make sorting and recycling an easy as possible.

4. Know What Cannot Be Recycled 

Another simple step to being more green with your beauty routine is to know what cannot be recycled. Small products, such as mascara tubes, are not widely accepted at recycling plants. Travel-size products, squeezable tubes, single-use packets/sachets, and other things under 2" cannot be recycled as they will not be identified by MRF machines.
