Best practices for recycling

We encourage you to ship when your box is full of My Black is Beautiful hair care packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.
