Upcycling is about repurposing items to extend their life so we can avoid adding things to our already overflowing landfills.
The beauty industry is renowned for unnecessary packaging and for defaulting to plastic packaging to keep costs down. At QLEAN we want to avoid adding more plastic to landfill so we package our balms and creams in glass jars. Whilst it's a more useful recycled commodity, glass can be tricky to recycle due to its fragility.
So, today we're going a step further. We're upcycling our empty QLEAN jars into an indoor herb garden for the window sill. It's so easy to do and they look fantastic! So don't throw out your empty jars. Check out the video and start upcycling!
