Green dot GREEN DOT
This symbol is used in Europe to show that the manufacturer pays a recovery and recycling organization to oversee ecologically responsible management of their packaging waste. All companies in Europe and the UK have a legal obligation to recycle and recover packaging waste which is typically done by outsourcing to a specialist company.

The "flammable" symbol is a warning to keep flames or high heat away from the product at all times because it's flammable. Cosmetic products like hairspray, deodorant, nail polish, and nail polish remover are typically flammable due to certain ingredients like alcohol and propellant gas.
