GOING GREENER EVERY DAY
At Barry M, we’re conscious about caring for our planet, and we’re on a journey to become even greener. Every parcel you receive from BarryM.com has been packaged with sustainability in mind, so you know what you receive is eco-friendly.
We’re proud to have received international accreditation for our Cosmetics Good Manufacturing Practices (ISO22716: 2007), and we’re working hard to reduce our impact on the world, reduce waste, recycle, limit our energy usage and conserve the planet’s resources.
We’re on a journey, and everyday we’ll strive to do better in everything we do.
You can also recycle the packaging you receive from us, making planet-friendliness easy! Here’s how you can do it:
Our small parcel bags are made from 65% recycled material, and are 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
MEDIUM TO LARGE PARCEL
Our medium to large parcel outer boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard, and are 100% recyclable. Any bubble wrap inside is made from recycled plastic and can be recycled too.
From 2020, our palettes are all made from sustainable card, and we’ve also removed the mirror and magnets to ensure that they are recyclable after use.
Discover how you can recycle your palettes with our step-by-step tutorial below!
Open your palette.
For palettes with elastic fastenings, pull tightly on it to remove. This is the only part of the palette which is currently not recyclable.
Using a blunt knife, carefully score the edges of the palette to separate the outer and inner parts.
Taking the inner part, lift the sealed edges to separate the top layer from the cardboard layers.
Again, using a blunt knife, carefully separate the two cardboard layers which hold the eyeshadow pans in place.
Now you should be able to easily remove the individual metal eyeshadow pans.
To recycle the metal pans, clean with warm water to remove remnants of eyeshadow powder.
Now that all layers of the palette are disassembled, you can place the cardboard and metal components into your household recycling bin and the elastic band in your general waste.
Our Clickable Eyeshadows and Mini Cream Palettes are made from recycled PET plastic and are fully recyclable, simply pop into your recycling bin after use!
