After purchasing your favourite beauty and skincare products, beauty lovers will relate to the dilemma of what to do with the empty, and often very elaborate packaging. A great solution is through the reuse of packaging. Follow our simple tips for how to reuse your favourite Sanctuary Spa products and become more sustainable with your beauty shopping habits.
Sustainable Beauty: Reusing Instead Of Recycling Packaging
Recycling your beauty products can often seem like a minefield. There are so many different components when it comes to just one piece of packaging, that knowing which parts can be recycled is a little overwhelming. Also, bathroom products of this sort are often not accepted by many public recycling sites.
According to a study conducted for Zero Waste Week, the beauty industry produces 120 billion units of packaging each year. Therefore, it is so important now more than ever, that we educate ourselves on which products we can recycle and do our little bit towards becoming more sustainable. Products that cannot be recycled, or are not recycled properly, end up in landfill, incinerated or as litter, therefore reusing packaging is a great way to lessen your carbon footprint and make use of something you already have.
More for your money: reuse packaging and reduce waste
As well as being good for the environment, the reuse of packaging is also good for your purse strings. For example, instead of forking out for new bathroom storage, simply follow our tips to see how you can repurpose your empty packaging. Reusing packaging is the perfect way to get more for your money and make the most out of what you already have, plus it’s less stressful than the trials and tribulations of recycling!
How To Reuse Beauty Packaging

Use empty tubs for storage
