British Beauty Council launches interactive map to encourage greater recycling of beauty empties

by | Jun 8, 2022

With rules and regulations varying from borough to borough, the British Beauty Council is helping individuals to navigate the sometimes-confusing world of recycling with the launch of an interactive recycling map on their website.

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.


UK beauty retailers offer an easy solution for individuals to conveniently recycle their empties. Collating the locations of recycling points into this interactive map, the British Beauty Council encourages you to head to the high street with your beauty empties.


Users simply input their location into the finder and will be shown where their closest beauty recycling point is.


The interactive map has launched featuring Holland & Barrett, the Estée Lauder Companies, the Body Shop, Superdrug, and L’Occitane drop-off points. The British Beauty Council welcome additional UK beauty businesses, including those who offer recycling-by-post options, to get involved, contact to find out how.
