Recycling cosmetic and skincare bottles is not always easy due to their size and mixed use of materials. Some recycling depots are not able to effectively sort and recycle them even if they are included in your recycling curbside bin as they are too small to for their machines to identify in the sorting process.
It is part of our businesses social responsibility plan to do what we can to ensure that our packaging is made using recycled materials or materials that can be recycled so that their end of life is not in landfill but can be repurposed into new materials and products.
Our airless bottles are definitely recyclable and to help you dispose of them we have joined the TerraCycle® program and will happily take your bottles back so that they can be correctly recycled. TerraCycle® is a global organisation who are the leaders in recycling hard-to-recycle waste and they have recycling initiatives all over the world.
Our waste stream is ‘Beauty Products and Packaging’ and we are using a Zero Waste Box™ to collect empty Ivadore bottles and boxes and then return them to TerraCycle® to be put into their recycling process. This way we can guarantee that our products are being recycled appropriately and not falling through the recycling system into landfill.
How it works
Start collecting your empty Ivadore airless bottles and when you are ready, send them back to us ready to be recycled. If you know that your local council can accept and sort cosmetic bottles we encourage you to use your standard recycling method.
Once we have a full Zero Waste Box™ we will then send it back to TerraCycle® where they will then distribute the bottles to their partner facilities and turn them into something new.
We will credit 1000 reward points for each return of empty bottles, so make sure you are signed up to our skin miles club.
What you need to do
When your box is full send it back to the below address. Alternatively you can send your products back at any time using your own packaging. For those who are part of our VIP program depending on your status you will be sent a reply-paid bag to use.
