Manage Your Skincare Empties

The call for lessening our daily waste is a huge thing in the world right now since more and more countries encounter different problems in terms of lessening trashes. 

Just like in our community, we noticed the increase of the trashes the garbage collectors get this past few months because collection period dramatically changed. The collector in our subdivision collects our garbage always on a Saturday before but the homeowners association here would announced a different collection day because the garbage truck cannot get more trashes since it's full already.  That's a clear manifestation that the trashes are rapidly increasing daily. 

Especially for cases like events and big gatherings, collecting of garbage has been a headache to trash collectors. They sometimes take days in collecting and cleaning a whole area because of those undisciplined citizens who doesn't care about the environment who just dumped their trashes in the streets. Dumpster bin rental is a great help to lessen the manpower and make collecting of trashes easier. 

Personally, my main concern is the increasing number of my skincare bottles and tubes that I disposed every month because to be honest, I'm already feeling guilty about it. So recently, I came up with ways to decrease and reuse some of the empties I am slowly collecting.

I've been a sheet mask collector since I started blogging. I am happy that I am building my sheet mask collection but the truth of the matter is, the nature is not happy about it. If I use a sheet mask daily, that's 365 plastics a year so the guilt-feeling is haunting me. So this year, I opted to use mask in tubs or containers with 7-30 pieces inside. Plus I can reuse the tub to be a container of my trinkets and other stuff. 


The beauty community often posts their empties online especially on Instagram so I always get a good idea such as creating bookmarks from the product boxes, plant containers for big tubs or tubs from sheet mask or face pads and a whole lot more. 


Sometimes, it's really overwhelming to use a new product that is released in the market especially if brands are reaching out to you and sending you all the products of their line. I remember I have 10 facial wash opened all at once and a quarter of those reached the expiration date because I tend to reach out on my fave face wash to use. 

Right now, the big challenge for me is how to reuse the tubes especially if they're small. So I often decline samples because those are additional plastics, still. Unless I create eco bricks, I can still use those empties. 

You? How do you handle all your trashes or your skincare empties. Share your little wins in helping save the environment in adding up more trashes. Would love to read more suggestions.
