Body Shop: Return. Recycle. Repeat

The Body Shop

The Body Shop in Cabot Circus is taking part in a new in store recycling scheme, encouraging customers to recycle empty packaging.

Return. Recycle. Repeat

Did you know that the beauty sector generates billions of pieces of packaging every year – most of which ends up in landfills or the ocean? It’s time for us all to start doing more for our precious planet.

Back in 1993, The Body Shop’s founder Dame Anita Roddick, introduced the world to a trailblazing in store recycling and refill scheme, and they think it’s time to reinvent it for you and the planet in 2019.

How it works

  1. Next time you visit The Body Shop in Cabot Circus, return your empty plastic bottles, tubs, tubes and pots. Speak to a member of staff first so they can tell you about their recycling scheme, what you can recycle and where to return your empties.
  2. With a member of staff, put your clean, empty packaging into the recycling bin. Once the bin is full, their recycling partners, TerraCycle®, collect it so they can recycle or repurpose it into new items like park benches and playgrounds.
  3. Love Your Body™ Club members will receive a reward worth £5 when they return any five of empty Body Shop bottles, tubs, tubes or pots.* The staff will update your member’s account when you tell them you’re returning your empty packaging. It’s just a little thank you for helping them recycle for the planet. Not a member? Sign up HERE today.
  4. Next time you visit them, do it again! Every time you take your empty packaging in store, they’ll recycle it. It really is that simple.

*T&Cs apply.
