Accidentally found out about this campaign while I was googling about one of the product that I want to try. And I can exchange for the 5 ml sample if I recycle 18 full-sized beauty product packaging, the best part is they accept any brands. At first I was kinda lazy to do that because I thought I have to bring in 18 empties, but I was wrong. You will receive a travel size product by L’Occitane for every 6 full-sized empties that you recycle.
So I spend one weekend morning cleaning and sorting out all the empty bottles in my house. I want to recycle it but I can’t find a way to do it until now.

Seeing all the waste that I have accumulated in one year or two, it makes me wonder about all the ones that I’ve tossed out all my life. I wouldn’t mind not being rewarded for recycling because I know I can take a small part in reducing the waste filling the landfill.
