Recycle your beauty products at INDRO

The retailers helping to make a difference

Beauty products and packaging can be quite complex to figure out to how recycle with designs in all shapes and sizes that can be made up from a range of mixed materials such as glass, plastic, metals, and paper. Unfortunately, most mainstream recyclers don’t have the capacity and resources to dissemble and separate each of the components in these products– making it inappropriate for your kerbside bin recycling.

So, if you’re wanting to sustainably dispose of your beauty empties, how do you do it? Thankfully some of our beauty retailers are here to help! All partnering with TerraCycle (global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials) each of our retailers offer simple and convenient ways for you to recycle your products whilst you’re in store.

We’ve put together a list to make taking responsible and sustainable choices easier when you shop at INDRO.
  • L’Occitane
Environmental consciousness is at L'Occitane’s core as they’ve recognised producing reusable packaging is only half of the solution in promoting sustainable habits with their customers. L’Occitane were the first beauty brand in Australia to partner with TerraCycle in 2016 to make recycling beauty products readily accessible and achievable for the everyday consumer. Simply bring your empties to the bin located by the register in store to recycle your waste. The more empties you bring within one visit the further you can reduce your carbon footprint.
