HELP GIVE YOUR
OLD M·A·C
PRODUCT

For over 30 years, Back-To-M·A·C has recycled or recovered your used product packaging and, where possible, given the old plastic a second life. What cannot be recycled is converted to energy.

A SECOND LIFE

01
Return your clean, empty products to a participating M·A·C counter* in-store [or ONLINE]
02
If they can be recycled, they’ll be shredded, washed, re-pelletized and recycled into the production of new materials – or, in some places, they’ll become a new M·A·C product!**
03
The packaging that cannot be recycled will be converted into energy.
