L'OCCITANE GREEN DAY

Green Day

JOIN US TO FIGHT PLASTIC POLLUTION
- FRIDAY 30TH AUGUST 2019 -

As a brand, we are on a mission to reduce plastic consumption. If we don’t do anything, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. So this year, we are launching for the first time a dedicated Green Day to beat plastic pollution. On this day, £10 from any of our Eco-Refill products sold will go towards our partnership with French ecological entrepreneurs, Plastic Odyssey and their upcoming mission to eradicate plastic waste.

1 ECO-REFILL SOLD = £10 FOR PLASTIC ODYSSEY

Set sail for a cleaner world

Here at L'OCCITANE we embark on a unique, extraordinary human adventure with Plastic Odyssey, to transform plastic waste into a new resource. 
In 2020, Plastic Odyssey will venture out on a boat at sea for three years and travel over 40,000 nautical miles to raise awareness and turn plastic into a new resource. For the first time in history, the vessel will be powered by plastic waste sailing along the most polluted coasts of Latin America, Africa and Asia. It will collect plastic debris, sort it and recycle it on board. Non-recyclable plastic will then be converted into fuel by pyrolysis. 
Plastic Odyssey will make 33 stopovers, during which the crew will explain to local communities that recycling has an economic value and can be a source of income.

More Than Just A Brand
