Saks launches beauty recycling program with TerraCycle
Saks announced on Tuesday the launch of the Saks Beauty Recycling program, created in partnership with TerraCycle.
Via the new program, customers can give their empty beauty containers a second life through Saks.com and at Saks Fifth Avenue stores across the U.S. To get there, customers can mail in their eligible empty beauty containers by using prepaid shipping labels that are downloadable via saks.com. They can equally drop off eligible empty containers in a designated collection bin at their local Saks Fifth Avenue store.
As part of the recycling process, collected waste is sorted by category based on composition, consolidated, and sent for processing to become new raw resources that are transformed into new products, like furniture and gardening equipment.
"Through the Saks Beauty Recycling program, we are providing customers with a convenient solution for recycling a wide variety of empty beauty packaging from all brands," explained Kate Oldham, SVP, beauty at Saks. "We are proud to introduce this program to our platform as an extension of the Saks shopping experience and a way to empower our customers to embrace more sustainable practices.”
The program accepts empty hair care, skin care and cosmetic packaging from all brands - including those sold on Saks.com and in Saks Fifth Avenue stores - as well as from other retailers.
"At Saks, we recognize that our day-to-day decisions can have a significant impact on our environment. With our partnership with TerraCycle, we hope to inspire our customers to join us in these initial efforts to reduce waste caused by difficult-to-recycle packaging and keep otherwise non-recyclable plastic packaging out of landfills,” Cara Chacon, SVP, ESG, Saks, added.
Saks joins other beauty brands and retailers to partner with TerraCycle including Nordstrom, L’Occitane and more.
