As of 2021, the global cosmetics industry produces 120 billion units of packaging every year and few types are accepted by kerbside recycling programmes. Many of the design elements that enable beauty products to be so useable, such as push pumps, make them difficult to recycle. Subsequently, only 9% of plastics produced are recycled and 12% are burned into our atmosphere. All remaining plastic waste ends up in landfill or scattered through the environment.
Our goal is to refill and recycle hundreds of thousands of pieces of product waste through the Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle. The recycled plastic material will be reused for beauty material or to make outdoor products such as picnic tables, and park benches. We will keep our customers and partners update with the progress we make.
The Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle is all part of our relentless pursuit to set a new standard in the beauty industry. We’re proving that luxurious, high performing skincare doesn’t have to come at a compromise to the planet.
We’ve proudly partnered with TerraCycle® to launch the Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle Recycling Programme.
The Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle Recycling Programme is a free, incentivised rewards initiative to ensure beauty products are kept in circularity. We’re rethinking the entire process of a beauty product’s lifespan. We offer free returns, rewards and recycling for not only our own facial products but for all brands’ facial products.
