HOW DOES IT WORK?

STEP 1

Gather up your empty The Body Shop plastic packaging at home. Just make sure it is as empty, clean and dry as possible.

STEP 2

Bring them into store and pop them in one of our Return, Recycle, Repeat bins.

STEP 3

We'll make sure they are safely processed and recycled to re-usable plastic granules through our service partner Enviroserve in assistance with Al Arfaj Group.

What can I recycle in store?

Here's a hand guide to what you can and can't bring back into store.
Bring into store

Bring back The Body Shop plastic packaging as long as it is empty, clean, dry and not hazardous. Perhaps you can even collect packaging from your friends too!

Unable to recycle

Unfortunately,we can't accept any empty packaging that's classed as hazardous or flammable, such as perfume bottles, as well as accessories.

Where does my empty packaging go?

Once you've brought all your empty packaging to our store and our bins have reached their loading capacity, our service partner Enviroserve will collect the empty containers and recycle them to re-usable plastic pellets through Al Arfaj group.
