RECYCLING AT THE BODY SHOP

Plastic pollution is a global crisis and the planet needs our help more than ever.

Discover how to return our empty packaging next time you visit us in store so we can recycle or repurpose it for you and the planet.

OUR NEW IN STORE RECYCLING SCHEME: RETURN. RECYCLE. REPEAT.

Did you know that the beauty sector generates billions of pieces of packaging every year – most of which ends up in landfills or the ocean? It’s time for us all to start doing more for our precious planet.

Back in 1993, our founder Dame Anita Roddick, introduced the world to a trailblazing in store recycling and refill scheme, so we think it’s time to reinvent it for you and the planet in 2019.

HOW DOES OUR RECYCLING SCHEME WORK?

Step 1

Next time you visit us in store, bring along your clean empty plastic bottles and tubs from The Body Shop! Speak to a member of staff first so they can tell you about our recycling scheme, what you can recycle and where to return our empties.

Step 2

With a member of staff, place the clean and dry empty bottles in the recycling bin. Once the bin is full, our recycling partner, Sembcorp, will collect it.

Step 3

Our staff will issue you a stamp on your Perkd app for every plastic bottle returned*. Collect 5 stamps and receive a reward! It's a little thank you for helping us recycle for the planet.
*Applicable to plastic bottles/tubs from The Body Shop only. Stamps will only be issued for bottles that are clean, empty and dry. Rewards are only valid for Love Your BodyTM Club members.

Step 4

Next time you visit us, bring back our empty packaging in store. It really is that simple.
