the buzz: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The first day of spring is this Saturday and in honor of new growth and the planet, we would like to suggest ways to reduce and reuse with your hair care product packaging. At the Hive we carry a product line called Davines. Davines is a very Earth friendly line that contributes to and protects forest reserves in Costa Rica as a way to reduce their carbon footprint.

The Davines Essential line is completely carbon neutral due to donations and protection of over 6 million square feet of green area.

The Essential line uses significantly less plastic than most product companies in an extra effort to conserve. Here at the Hive, we refill any empty & clean Essential Shampoo and Conditioner containers for 10% off their regular price. This way less packaging has to be created and you can save money by eliminating the price of the product's container.

If you're not interested in refills or have containers from our other styling products or containers from any item, there are tons of ways to reuse.

Here are just a few ideas from Davines and the Hive for ways to reuse our product containers:

- mini planters
- home-made sauces or salad dressing
- loose grains, oats, or spices
- dry laundry detergent
- travel size food containers
- beads, buttons, etc
- paint
- cat and dog food scoops
- office supplies
- coins
- coffee beans
- nails, bolts, screws, etc
- jewelry
