Join Us In Reducing Waste

Recycling in Partnership With TerraCycle®

Respect for the environment is at the heart of L'Occitane en Provence. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to provide a collection and recycling program for beauty and skin care products and packaging in our L’OCCITANE boutiques.

Every year, millions of beauty and skincare packaging end up in dumpsters and landfills. We are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.

Bring your used beauty and skin care products and packaging to one of our participating boutiques to be recycled. The L’Occitane Recycling Program allows us to recycle beauty and skin care products to prevent them from ending up in landfills and be used in the creation of new products.

Program accepted waste:

  1. Beauty packaging such as lip balm tubes, makeup remover bottles and pumps, fragrances bottles and pumps, and deodorant sticks. 
  2. Skin care packaging such as face mask packaging, refill pouches, and dispensers and tubes for soap, facial cleansers and body lotions. 
  3. Hair care packaging such as pumps and caps from shampoo and conditioner bottles, hair care dispensers and containers, hair product trigger heads, and refill pouches.

At L'OCCITANE, we're implementing more and more packaging that can be recycled. We are committed to transforming packaging into something useful. Upcycling is a creative way to reduce waste and reuse your packaging at home.
