PACKAGING AT THE BODY SHOP
DISCOVER OUR UNIQUE RECYCLED PLASTIC & PACKAGING PROJECTS
We’re changing the way we think about plastic and packaging so we can work towards being the most sustainable brand we can be. Learn about the projects we’re working on to make this a reality.
WHAT RECYCLING PROJECTS ARE WE WORKING ON?
HERE IS OUR TIMELINE FOR BECOMING A MORE SUSTAINABLE BRAND:
We’re aiming for a minimum of 75% PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic across all product lines by 2022. This is a big leap from our current 10% PCR plastic across all our ranges. But why not aim for 100% PCR? If we did this, it would end up reducing the life of the recycled plastic, but by adding a small amount of virgin plastic we can ensure that everything we produce can continue being recycled.*
All our plastic will be free of fossil fuel and, instead, we’ll collect 100% equivalent by weight of all our packaging waste to reuse within our supply chains.
We will only be using three types of plastic instead of 20, making it easier for our consumers to recycle our products. With our ‘Return. Recycle. Repeat.’ and other schemes, we will collect 25% more packaging than we sell. This is not only great for the environmental footprint that packaging has – it also increases the pool of recycled materials for other industries to use.
*Virgin plastic used will be of a green source, bio based or equivalent, not fossil fuel derived!
