Enjoy some armchair environmentalism with Origins Trade-In Day

Posted at 3:00 pm, April 19, 2012 in Shopping & Style

Origins a perfect worldIf you’re currently squeezing the last dregs of moisturiser from your budget tube of face cream, your timing couldn’t be better. Origins have teamed up with Global ReLeaf (an organisation that protects and restores forests) to hold a Trade-In Day on April 21. Just bring in your empty skincare product (of any brand – even that nasty value range tub) to an Origins store and exchange it for a free full size bottle of either Starting Over Age-Erasing Moisturiser (worth £36) or A Perfect World SPF25 Age-Defense Moisturiser (worth £32). Samples are on a first come, first serve basis with 5,000 available nationwide. While you’re in store, you may as well help save the world. Well, kind of. For every product purchased from the A Perfect World range (between April 15-28), Origins and Global ReLeaf will plant a tree on your behalf, helping to restore areas destroyed by wildfire. Armchair environmentalism at its finest. Katherine Ogilvie
