Use a hankie, save the earth

Korean skincare and makeup brand Innisfree wants you to be more eco-friendly by using their printed handkerchiefs

Innisfree is a green brand that uses ingredients found in Jeju Island, Korea. But instead of the usual recyclable totes to promote their environmentally-conscious status, Innisfree is giving away free handkerchiefs this June as part of their "Use a hankie, save the Earth" campaign. Simply spend $30 at Innisfree stores to receive a printed hankie, but do note that they are given out at the discretion of their staff — so hankie hoggers need not apply.

And what would you use these hankies for? Consider them as pocket squares, makeshift lunch bags and decorative head or neck scarves. With the cute and cheery prints — there's a different design and colour scheme for each season in the year — the possibilities are endless. Or you could just use them as handkerchiefs. 

At Innisfree stores from 1 June
