Everything you need to know about The Beauty Dropoff at Ulta Stores

Ulta JUST announced they have teamed with Pact Collective to give your beauty empties a second life! Together, they're reducing landfill waste and promoting sustainability.

Pact Collective writes120 billion beauty packages are created every year.

"Did you know that the majority will most likely end up in landfill, incinerators, or the ocean? Beauty packaging is often too small, too flexible, or made of too many materials to be recycled through traditional curbside recycling systems. Through The Beauty Dropoff Bins in partnership with Pact, we can help reduce the amount of hard-to-recycle beauty packaging ending up as waste." - Pact Collective

Pact specializes in gathering beauty packaging that's difficult to recycle, such as small tubes and caps
