I just realized that Clinique’s compact powder comes in a nice green acrylic case but it’s not recyclable;-( I have purchased many of these over the years and I have been trashing these nice cases most of the time, I can only imagine how many other women do the same. I kept one Clinique’s compact powder for the mirror, but how many of these can a girl keep? This is not a good thing for our environment; I know plastic bottles and plastic bags are harmful to the environment and plastic never decomposes.
Well, after this last case I bought I will be switching to another brand, Arbonne. The
Arbonne refillable compact case
Arbonne Pressed Powder
cost can get a bit higher because of the shipping but they sell the case and refills separate, but you will be saving on gas and that trip to the mall. Do your online shopping and get it at your door steps! So you can just buy your refills after the first purchase and not worry about disposing so many make up cases into the environment.
And, you can recycle the powder container and use it for small items storage in your make up drawer; it will also keep it very organized 😉
