Introducing: Clean Up The Cabinet.
*This program is currently in Beta and only available to those in the Los Angeles and Orange County area.
You’re going to run out of your beauty products, and those empty tubes and bottles have to go somewhere! Since 90% of these containers can’t be recycled the “traditional” way, that leaves the world with a lot of wasted materials.
Winky Lux has teamed up with Replenysh to take those beauty empties off your hands and recycle them the correct way. For those living in the Los Angeles and Orange County area, this is a new and seamless program to help the Earth a little without any extra work for yourself.
We’re excited to help you help the Earth with this new program, in just 3 easy steps.
Compile all of the empty cosmetics you want to recycle (as few as 5 and as many as 75).
Log on and tell us exactly where and when to pick up.
Place the products outside your door for a courier to pick up.
And that’s it! You can even track the impact you’re making by following the journey of your recycled products on the Replenysh site.
Plus, with all that empty shelf space, it’s time to restock! Each donation of recycled products through Replenysh will earn you 100 Winky Lux Reward points.
Q: How does the process work?
A: First, compile all of the empty cosmetics you want to recycle into a paper or plastic bag. Then, head to WinkyLux.com to log into the Replenysh portal to schedule where and when to pick up your recyclables. Finally, once you choose the pick-up day, drop your bag outside your front door and wait for a courier to pick up (you’ll receive a text to remind you they’re coming!). And that’s it! You can even track the impact you’re making by following the journey of your recycled products through the Replenysh portal.
Q: How much can I have picked up at once?
A: A courier is able to pick up a minimum of 5 items and a maximum of 75 items.
Q: How often can I have products picked up and recycled?
A: As often as you like! The limit does not exist.
Q: What types of products can I recycle?
A: All used cosmetics that are in plastic containers (we are currently not accepting cosmetics in paper, glass, or other non-plastic containers)
Q: I don’t live in Los Angeles, can I mail in my products to be recycled?
A: Unfortunately our program is in beta and only available to those in Los Angeles and Orange County at this time. Feel free to drop us your email and we’ll let you know as we expand this program to other regions of the country.
Q: Can I only recycle Winky Lux products?
A: No! Through Winky Lux Clean Up The Cabinet, you’re able to recycle empty cosmetics from any brand that you have lying around. In order to schedule a pick up, at least 1 item must be from Winky Lux.
Q: Do I get Winky Lux Rewards points for recycling?
A: Yes! Each time you recycle products you will receive 100 Winky Lux Reward points.
Q: Where do the products go once they are picked up?
A: Once in Replenysh’s hands, products are taken to a local California site, Arqlite, where the materials are “upcycled” into another product, rather than just getting thrown into a landfill.
Q: Why can’t I recycle my cosmetic products the way I recycle everything else?
A: Typically, cosmetics are made of a mix of polymers and other materials that make them nearly impossible to market for reuse and very difficult to break down the way traditional recyclables are.
