In today's world, any responsible company has a duty to do all it can to reduce waste and prevent pollution. The future of our planet depends on our actions today! At L'OCCITANE, we've been focusing on ways to reduce, recycle and react for many years, but there's still more we can do. And we're working on it!
Alarming fact: By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
What we do: We have never had plastic bags in our stores, and are phasing out plastic cellophane and plastic spatulas.
Alarming fact: 50% of the plastic the world uses is used just once, then thrown away.
What we do: 25 L'OCCITANE products are already available in eco-refills, which use an average of 85% less plastic than a standard bottle.
Alarming fact:Over the last 10 years, humans have produced more plastic than during the whole of last century.
What we do: By 2025, 100% of our plastic bottles will be produced from 100% recycled material.
3 x 100% by 2025! 100% of our bottles will be made from 100% recycled plastic, and 100% of our owned boutiques will offer a recycling service.
Our global use of materials and improve products’ lifespan by promoting multiple usage of a single packaging to our consumers, using eco-refills or refill-stations, for example.
Every material that we use, either by giving it a second life or making sure that its waste can become a resource. To do this, we first make sure that our packs are themselves recycled and recyclable thanks to visionary partners such as TerraCycle®.
By supporting partners such as Surfers Against Sewage, Clean Coasts, Plastic Odyssey, and multi-brands’ initiatives that encourage the responsible and sustainable use of plastic like SPICE (the Sustainable Packaging Initiative for Cosmetics), involving both our staff and our consumers with us.
Our plastic-free mailing box is made from FSC-certified recycled cardboard and is 100% recyclable. The box is printed with water-based inks, which are more environmentally friendly. Our filling process has also been optimised to minimise empty spaces.
You can choose to spend an extra £2 as a brilliant alternative to the usual gift box. Made from 100% recycled cotton and measuring H 28cm x W 26cm, the sustainable gift bag can contain up to 3 full sized products. Select 'send as a gift' and select the cotton gift bag option before entering your personalised message.
We aim to reduce the quantity of material used and increase our packagings’ lifespan while making sure that they are recycled and recyclable as much as possible.
Our goal is to achieve 100% recycled plastic for our bottles and 100% recyclable plastic for all our packaging, by 2025.
