You Can Now Return Old Human Nature Bottles So They Can Be Recycled

Don't throw away your empty bottles just yet!

( If you're a loyal customer of local brand Human Nature's beauty, self-care, and home-cleaning products, you might already know that the brand is dedicated to being as eco-friendly as possible. They use ingredients derived from nature and package various products in materials that contain no harmful chemicals and produce less waste and energy when made compared to most commercially manufactured plastics. Human Nature also has refilling stations where you can reuse your old bottles and fill them with new products. Their latest project is another step towards making the brand even better for the environment: The Balik Bote initiative allows you to return your empty bottle Human Nature bottles directly to their stores so that they can be recyled!

Human Nature partnered with cement supplier Holcim Philippines for this initiative. Holcim will use the plastic packaging that customers return as alternative fuel for manufacturing cement. All you have to do is drop by any Human Nature store in Metro Manila and turn over your empty, clean, and dry bottles for recycling. They’ll be delivered to Holcim’s plant in Bulacan and shredded by the company's partner waste management unit Geocycle. Once shredded, the materials will be used as fuel and raw materials for making cement.


By now, you've probably gone through bottle after bottle of Human Nature's various shampoos, soaps, cleaning products, and more. Now you can make sure that your used products don't go to waste. Plus, you can help the environment in your own little way!

According to Human Nature President Anna Meloto-Wilk, the brand has "been looking for a credible recycling partner for a long time who can help us manage our plastic waste and stay true to our commitment to steward the environment." She shares her hopes other brands also follow suit in the coming years and that they "likewise discover the benefits of extending our responsibility not just to the products that we make but also the waste we generate."

Human Nature is available online and at their stores nationwide. Note that the Balik Bote initiative is only available in Metro Manila branches.

A cult classic, the Sunflower Beauty Oil is formulated to brighten and moisturize skin, thanks to its nourishing ingredients vitamins A, D, and E. The best part about it is that it can be used from head to toe! It claims to lighten dark spots and pimple marks (and even your underarms!), smoothen dry and rough patches on the skin (including your heels and elbows!), and also make your dry hair look healthier, to name a few.


Balancing Facial Wash (P79.75/50ml, P199.75/200ml)

If you have oily skin, this facial wash is packed with elemi (a natural ingredient that has anti-aging properties), which helps balance sebum production while eliminating bacteria and reducing skin inflammation. Not only does it help you get a clearer and fresher complexion, it also boosts collagen, helping your skin stay firm while minimizing the appearance of fine lines. We recommend using this then dabbing a bit of Sunflower Beauty Oil on your face for a youthful glow.

Tinted Lip Balms (P109.75)
