About The Blogger

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over a decade now. I work full-time in my dream company while juggling love, life, this cute blog and a blogger's community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

  • L'Occitane BIG Little Things Recycling Program

    5.02.2020

    don't waste your second chance

    During the MCO you've probably decluttered or accumulated many wastes but what can you do with them? In my What To Do During MCO post, I have shared that you could go to recycling centers for your recyclables. For clothes, you could donate or recycle them at H&M's fashion recycling program and in return get a 15% discount card for your next single item purchase.

    If you're a beauty enthusiast, then you might want to check out your local beauty stores for their recycling program. One particular program that I am fond of is L'Occitane's Big Little Things recycling program in partnership with I-CYCLE Malaysia, a local solutions provider of waste separation and recycling.

    This is also the first recycling program for L'Occitane and if I'm not mistaken, it started in Malaysia? If that is correct, I really applaud the team for starting this sustainable initiative to help locals understand the importance of now throwing their plastics away and reducing plastic pollution in the world.

    There is hope for plastics after all and also a reward for those who start!

    With the success of its 1st program, the brand has since updated their program to version 2 which instead of the initial 6 qualified exchanges it is now 10 exchanges for 1 reward and gradually qualified tiers gets better. In summary, you need more empties to get a reward and they added an additional 2 reward items in the tiers. It's twice as hard now compared to the first one.

     OLD  VS NEW 
     6 empties = 1 stamp  10 empties = 1 stamp
     5 tiers  7 tiers
     *NEW* shower gel + divine youth oil added
     70 empties = bonus RM10 voucher
    comparison between old and new program

    I think the brand has realized Malaysians have many plastics and it was too easy to achieve for the first program and rewards were fast gone!

    P.S: Yes when I went for mine, the rewards were out of stock but thankfully they still honor the reward by asking me to come back again when the stocks are replenished! 

    So How Does The Program Work?
    1. Find your closest store that accepts the recycling program (not all stores does it) *refer to list at the bottom of this post.
    2. Bring your empties, they must be qualified empties. Please refer to the list of accepted empties in this post. For disqualified empties, it will still be accepted just no stamp would be given.
    3. For every qualified empty, you receive a stamp on your e-reward page online. Once you collected the number of stamps needed to redeem a reward, you'll get the item from the store during or at your next visit.
    * An account will be created for you using your phone number. There you can check your stamp collection and recycling journey as well as the rewards.

    Ok, I'm interested! So what kind of empties are considered qualified? Well, you're in luck because the brand accepts any beauty brands! Accepted Packaging. The friendly store team will filter and check your empties when you bring it in and get your phone number to update your e-reward page where your stamps are shown in the rewards history page.
