In order to continuously reduce our environmental impact, we participate in the beauty products & packaging zero waste box program with Terra-cycle
TerraCycle has created a zero waste solution for beauty products and packaging. Once collected, the beauty and skin care items are sorted and separated by material composition. The separated items are then cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products. Terra-cycle uses only circular methods (reuse, upcycling or recycling) for re-purposing the waste we collect through there various programs. Terra-cycle will never landfill or incinerate your waste.
YFM Incentive Program
Check all products carefully to see if they can be recycled properly after they are emptied. Any product you purchase from YouFromMe will come with a recycling bag for any empty products with a pre-paid return shipping label inside. Once you have 5 or more empty bottles you can ship directly back to us at no cost. You can also simply request a shipping label to recycle without purchasing an item from our site.
For every bag you recycle with us you will receive 10% off any product on our website.
