There's no getting around the numbers: the beauty industry generates an estimated 120 billion units of waste globally each year—metal compacts, plastic pumps, and glass bottles included. At Westman Atelier, we strive to do our part in reducing our footprint. This includes developing new packaging with the most sustainable materials, converting to refills whenever it makes sense, and sharing what to do with your empty compacts or sticks when trash or recycling day rolls around.
As proud members of the Pact Collective, a nonprofit that breaks down hard-to-recycle beauty packaging, we hope to close the wish-cycling gap. Here's a list of what products they accept, where to find a bin, and how to order an easy return label!
