Our Packaging

  • What It Is

    Right now, our Mascara 101 vial is made of virgin plastic.
  • Why we chose it

    While we don't like using virgin plastic, we haven't yet found an alternative for our mascara vial yet. We're working towards a tube with a recyclable applicator and more biodegradable packaging.
  • Recycling

    Make sure your mascara tube is empty! Trim off the spoolie and throw in the trash—this piece is not yet recyclable. Place the vial, cap and rod in your home recycling bin. Because Mascara 101's components are small, we can't guarantee they will make it to the recycling stream. We've partnered with Pact Collective to make sure your hard-to-recycle items get recycled. Head to our recycling page to get started. All of our secondary cartons are made from 100% post-consumer waste and FSC-certified paper. Simply toss them in your home recycling bin and you’re good to go.


  • Climate Neutral Certified

    Since our launch, we have offset and will continue to offset our entire carbon footprint by investing in various carbon drawdown projects.

  • Certified Plastic Negative

    For every product we sell, we contribute a percentage towards vetted impact programs that remove more plastic waste from the environment than we create in our packaging and operations.

  • Leaping Bunny Certified

    We don't conduct or commission animal testing on any of our products or work with any other companies who do. Period!

  • 1% For The Planet

    We donate 1% of all of our sales to various environmental non-profits working to reverse some of the most pressing climate change issues of our time.
