We need your help! At L'OCCITANE, we're committed to reducing waste and limiting the environmental impact of our products. And while we can't avoid using packaging, we can avoid it going to landfill or incineration. That's where you come in... We've joined forces with TerraCycle® to set up a collection and recycling program, so you can bring your beauty empties to a L'OCCITANE store and give them a second life!
Alarming fact: By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
What we do: Over 70% of our packaging can be easily recycled through standard recycling channels.
Alarming fact: 50% of the plastic the world uses is used just once, then thrown away.
What we do: 25 L'OCCITANE products are already available in eco-refills, which use 65 to 90% less plastic than a standard bottle.
Alarming fact: Humans have produced more plastic over the last 10 years than during the entire last century.
What we do: By reducing the thickness of our packaging, we're saving up to 200 tons of plastic every year* and we are working on ways to replace other unnecessary plastics such as cellophane.
*On the basis of our 2020 numbers
Transform your Almond Milk Concentrate jars into irresistible little plant holders! Easy peasy: simply clean the jar, place some compost in it, and add one of your favourite plants.
Once you've finished your Réotier face cream, clean the jar and use it to hold herbs, spices and even small fruits, such as cherries, tomatoes and cherry tomatoes!
No more misplacing your jewellery! When your scented candle is finished, remove any remaining wax and the wick, then use the pretty jar to store your necklaces, rings and earrings.
In today's world, any responsible company has a duty to do all it can to reduce waste and prevent pollution. The future of our planet depends on our actions today! At L'OCCITANE, we've been focusing on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle for many years, but there's still more we can do. And we're working on it!
We love Provence and the South of France. After all, that's where our roots lie. So it's only natural that we should want to protect and promote the biodiversity of the Mediterranean Basin. This "biodiversity hotspot" is one of the richest ecosystems in the world. We intend to do our bit to protect this precious environment.
