Giving New Life To Eco-Conscious Beauty
March 24, 2022
Many of us have a common habit to dispose of our empty skincare products rather than recycling them accordingly in blue bins. Not many of us also realise that there is an additional process of cleaning and drying these containers in order for them to be recycled. While recycling may be a popular buzzword in the beauty industry, many brands have not made it convenient nor practical to do so. Each bottle contains up to 5 or 6 different plastic materials, with some being difficult to open and clean without breaking them apart, and others being made with materials that cannot be recycled.
The Beauty & Personal Care market is worth about US$1,061M in 2020, and this is expected to grow annually by 1.6%. This means more unsustainable practices will be continued under the guise of recyclable beauty.
In step with our philosophy, RE:ERTH's sustainability program in Singapore encourages people to bring in their empty packaging to be fully recycled and converted to virgin-quality recycled plastics* and non-fossil derived fuel via our partner’s groundbreaking technology.
