To mark Global Recycling Day on March 18th 2019, let’s look at how we can better support recycling and help protect the Earth’s valuable resources.
From simple changes to make at home to how L’Occitane commits to reducing its impact on the environment - we can all make everyday changes for the long run.
Global Recycling Day began in 2018 in order to recognize the vital role that recycling plays in protecting the planet.
Billions of tons of natural resources are being used to produce consumables. These will soon run out - meaning recycling and reusing waste will be more important than ever before.
6. Eat seasonal
Buying fruit and veg from local farmers’ markets means it won’t have traveled too far and comes with less plastic packaging.
7. Keep the heat in
Make sure your windows and ceilings are well-insulated. Look into whether eco-friendly alternatives like solar panels or rainwater catchments are an option for your home.
8. Use lower temperatures
For your heating, washing machine, oven... go low!
9. Grow a garden
In your backyard or on your balcony...it will brighten your everyday and add much needed oxygen into the atmosphere.
10. Air-dry your clothes
Do this whenever possible, rather than using energy-guzzling tumble dryers.
We believe that small changes today can make a big difference for tomorrow. This is why recycling is a crucial aspect of the products we make, and help our conscientious effort to protect the planet.
Over the last 10 years we have been resolute in reducing our impact on the environment and in creating more eco-friendly products. Eco-initiatives like our TerraCycle® recycling program, creating eco-refill versions of our products and launching our first bottle made from 100% recycled plastic.
Our range of eco-refills use 90% less plastic than regular-sized products.
Using Recycled Plastic Packaging
We’re working to increase the amount of recycled plastic in our packaging. Currently, 30% of our products are made from recycled plastic. Our aim is that by 2025, 100% of our bottles will be made from 100% recycled plastic.
