How to properly sort cosmetic packaging?

Find the material on the packiging and see if it’s recyclable in your country:

Is sorting really useful?

Raw materials are becoming increasingly scarce. Therefore, it is essential to recycle packaging as much as possible to limit material losses. This is the principle of the circular economy. By sorting correctly at home and elsewhere, we improve the recycling process and the quality of recycled materials. Sorting makes a big difference for our planet, our well-being and that of future generations!

Sorting is not just a simple gesture

IT IS ALSO A CITIZEN ACT!
