Return to Origins Recycling Program
Origins has launched its own Return to Origins recycling program. You can now take your clean and empty cosmetics containers to any Origins stores and counters (except Nordstrom, Canada and Puerto Rico). And it doesn’t matter what brand your cosmetics are! The returned pakaging will either be recycled or used for energy recovery.
In addition, to celebrate Earth Month and give you an incentive to get started, if you take your empty containers to the counters this month, you’ll get a free sample of a Origins skin care product!
Star Trek Fragrances
Genki Wear, known for its licensed science fiction jewelry and perfumes, has produced three Star Trek colognes and perfume (two for men and one for women) based on the original 1960s television show: Tiberius Cologne, Red Shirt Cologne and Pon Farr.
Tiberius Cologne is inspired by captain James Tiberius Kirk and features “notes of freshness and sensuality”. The perfume as top notes of sweet citron zest, black pepper and cedar and base notes of vanilla, white musk and sandalwood.
Red Shirt Cologne is homage to the sacrifices tireless and nameless crew of the USS enterprise and features the words “because tomorrow may never come” printed on the packaging. The fragrance has top notes of green mandarin, bergamot and lavender and base notes of leather and grey musk.
Pon Farr, which is named after a Vulcans mating ritual, is a fragrance designed to drive men wild. There aren’t anymore information on the scent as of yet.

It smooths skin and eliminates pores and imperfection, providing an air-brushed, luminous and natural finish.
The foundation is available in 12 shades and retails at $9.79.
What do you think?
Every year we throw away lots of stuff that could instead be recycled. I try and recycle anything cos I think its’ important to do your bit to help the environment and if everyone did it, it would make a huge difference. I think it’s great that Origins came up with a recycling campaign, and although it’s not the first company to come up with an initiative like this (MAC and Bond no.9 have similar programs for instance), I hope more brands will follow soon.
As for the fragrances, I’m not a Star Trek fan, so I’ll pass on those. Instead, I’m always looking for a great foundation that doesn’t break the bank and this one from Maybelline seems worth checking out.
Are you gonna check out this products? And what do you think of The Return To Origins campaign?
