Here’s a great deal that just turned up on my Earth Day deal tracking system. This Friday, on Earth Day (April 22, 2011), customers are invited to “trade in” any one of their existing skin care products, regardless of brand, for an Origins high-performance, paraben free cleanser. This offer is good while supplies last at Origins retail stores and department store counters for FREE. I love this deal! Take the opportunity to clear out some cosmetics or cleansers that you aren’t using or that have harsh chemicals for an eco-friendly Origins product. If you bring in a product to trade-in to your local Origins store, you can choose between two full size award-winning products – Checks and Balances Frothy face wash or A Perfect World Antioxidant cleanser with White Tea - while supplies last. Note, this are not trial sizes. Click here to fill in the form from Origins.com, then print it out and bring it to the store to get your free products. Plus, all cosmetic packaging collected from the products you trade-in will be recycled or responsibility converted to energy through the Return to Origins Recycling Program.
The Return to Origins Recycling Program offers consumers a place to drop off their empty cosmetic packaging – everything from bottles, tubes, jars, deodorant sticks and compacts regardless of brand – to be recycled, when possible, or responsibly converted to energy. Customers also receive free samples as a thank you from Origins for participating. Since the programs launch Origins has recycled more than 17,000 pounds of cosmetic packaging. Way to go Origins! No wonder Dr. Andrew Weil loves them!
