Use Your #ProductEmpties to Get Free Makeup

What’s better than loving a beauty product so much that you use every last drop? Getting a free replacement just for recycling it. A makeup recycling program is one of the smartest ways to control makeup-related waste. For years now, MAC Cosmetics has been encouraging customers to send back used packaging and score a free lipstick in exchange as part of the Back to MAC program.

Makeup brands like Lush, Kiehl’s and Origins have also come up with makeup recycling programs to reduce toxic waste and involve their users in the process. The Back to MAC program is very simple. Customers need to send six used product packages over to the company and get a free lipstick for their efforts. You can send it over via mail or turn it in at your nearest MAC outlet.

In case you want to be a part of the revolution (and score some free product), here’s exactly how Back to MAC works.
