OUR REFILL & RECYCLING SCHEMES
WE’RE IN A GLOBAL PLASTIC CRISIS. THIS IS WHAT WE’RE DOING ABOUT IT.
The planet is drowning in plastic. The beauty sector generates billions of pieces of packaging every year – most of which ends up in landfills or the ocean. At The Body Shop, we’re always working to reduce our impact on the planet, and we’re committed to becoming the most sustainable business that we can be. We’re focusing on using fewer plastic materials where possible, using more plant-based and recycled plastic and helping people around the world to reuse, repurpose and recycle it. Here’s how we’re doing it.
HOW DOES OUR RECYCLING SCHEME WORK?
Next time you visit us in store, return any empty plastic bottles tubs, tubes and pots. Speak to a member of staff first, so they can fill you in on our recycling scheme, what you can recycle and where to return your empties.
With a member of staff, put your clean, empty packaging into the recycling bin. Once the bin is full, our recycling partners, TerraCycle®, collect it so they can recycle or repurpose it into new items like park benches and playgrounds.
Whenever you’re near a store, pop by and do it again! Every time you bring your empty packaging in store, we’ll recycle it. It really is that simple.
