We've come up with a few more ways to reuse our products once they're empty. If you have some nearly empty Ego products around the house, why not turn them into fun craft projects you can work on with the family. 

Below are a few examples with instructions you can follow. Feel free to get creative and come up with your own fun ways to reuse our products once you’ve finished using them.  Remember to share your craft activities across Instagram, tagging @egoskincare for a chance to feature on our page.

Reducing waste is an important step in helping to preserve the planet we call home. Here at Ego, we're always looking for creative ways we can reduce waste around the office and with our products too.
