Beauty recycling: The British Beauty Council puts more than 2000 conscious bins on the map

by | Nov 8, 2022

Launched in June this year, the British Beauty Council’s interactive recycling map is designed to help consumers dispose of empties in a planet-friendly way

The Courage to Change report identified that 56% of Brits don’t recycle bathroom waste such as shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles simply because it’s inconvenient to do so. And,

That’s no surprise, with varying rules in place from borough to borough and sometimes more than five different types of (recyclable and non-recyclable) materials in a serum bottle.

To help reduce beauty’s 120 billion units of packaging every year ending up in landfill, we launched a beauty recycling map that can be tailored to the consumer. It pinpoints the recycling points in Holland & Barrett, the Estée Lauder Companies, the Body Shop, Superdrug, and L’Occitane stores across the UK.

Although we have more than 2000 high-street locations on the map, we want to highlight even more. If you are a business offering in-store, free post, or refill opportunities, get in touch by following these three simple steps:

  1. Email sbc@britishbeautycouncil.com with the subject: INTERACTIVE RECYCLING MAP
