REDUCING WASTE

A STORY OF RESPECT FOR THE PLANET

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! 

Alarming Facts...

By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.

50% of the plastic the world uses is used just once, then thrown away.

Over the last 10 years, humans  have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century.

Our mission as a Brand

OUR AIM:
To ensure that 100% of our bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic, and 100% of our stores offer a recycling service by 2025.
Two ways to do this: 
1. Develop eco-designed packaging together
2. Be ecologically innovative!

 

REACT

OUR AROMACHOLOGIE RANGE: 100% recycled packaging for the past 10 years!

Do you know why the bottles in the Aromachologie range have a green colour? It's because they're designed to be green! In the world of cosmetics, clear plastics are usually preferred, but we chose to use coloured bottles for this range, so we could make them from 100% recycled PET.
By 2025, we want to be using rPET in all our bottles, and we're working with Loop Industries to make this happen!
 

REDUCE

ECO-REFILLS: AN ECO-EASY WAY TO CUT DOWN ON PLASTIC!

Many of our products are available in eco-refills, which use 65 to 90% less plastic than a regular bottle. In 2017, our overall use of plastic was reduced by 7% thanks to customers opting for these eco-friendly solutions. So, when there's a choice, go for this eco-option! And you'll be glad to know that we plan to sell even more eco-refills in the future!
 

RECYCLE

LOOP INDUSTRIES COMPANY

LOOP: TRULY TRANSFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGY!

L'OCCITANE recently signed a multi-year contract with Loop Industries, which uses a revolutionary process to transform waste plastic into high-purity, food-grade PET plastic. Thanks to this groundbreaking technology, we should be able to achieve our goal of using 100% recycled plastic in our bottles by 2025!

WHAT'S NEXT?

ECO-DESIGN: RETHINKING OUR PACKAGING

We like to keep our packaging simple: no frills or excess! By reducing packaging thickness, we've already saved 28 tons of plastic. And we're currently planning to replace our cellophane protective seals with a new, eco-friendly, compostable solution made from FSC-certified wood fibre. Watch this space!
