Cosmetics recycling solutions that keep the earth beautiful

How it works

How it works

Why do we do it?
Because beauty products account for almost 1/3 of all landfill waste.

As described by the David Suzuki Foundation as the “Dirty Dozen” – a survey of chemicals commonly found in cosmetics concluded that many of the ingredients found in the beauty products consumers enjoy – are from pretty.

US Research

US researchers report that 1 in 8 of the 82,000 possible ingredients found in personal care products rate as industrial chemicals.

Canadian Survey

In a recent survey asking Canadians to share their most commonly used cosmetic products, it was discovered that 80 percent of the products listed contained at least one of these toxic chemicals.

Non Bio-degradable

The plastic used for packaging beauty products is largely non bio-degradable, taking hundreds of years to break down, and if sent to landfills untreated, results in the distribution of chemicals back into the ecosystem.

Working together

Protecting our environment requires a collective commitment, and Hedgehog Recycle works closely with hair salons, spas, residential properties and retailers.
