The Body Shop

Cosmetics packaging is typically classified as ‘hard-to-recycle,’ which means it won’t be accepted by recycling services. However, this initiative is intended to process and recycle all of the ‘non-recyclable’ material, preventing waste from going to landfills or being incinerated.
Head over to The Body Shop with your empty, clean and dry cosmetic packaging and pop them off in the Return, Recycle, Repeat bins. While you are there, be sure to browse through their various body, fragrance and skincare products currently being developed to improve their environmental impact score.
