New York-based boutique perfumer Bond No. 9 just made taking out the trash smell a whole lot better. As part of an initiative to cut down on post-consumer beauty-industry waste, founder Laurice Rahme is spearheading an entirely new type of recycling campaign. Drop off any brand of empty perfume bottle at Bond No. 9’s counter at Saks Fifth Avenue or one of their boutiques, and they’ll be happy to take it off your hands and recycle it for you. And if you happen to be seduced by Gramercy Park, Chinatown, or any of Bond No. 9’s other NYC-inspired scents while you’re there, they’ll throw in a refillable vial of New York Fling as an eco-friendly thank-you for your purchase. But the real thanks comes with knowing you’re helping make the world a little less trash-y one bottle of Celine Dion Eau de Parfum or Paris Hilton Purse Spray at a time.
