L'OCCITANE UPCYCLING IDEAS
Plastic pollution is everywhere. As we know, if we want a cleaner future, we need to cut down on plastic and on general waste. At L'OCCITANE, we're not only increasing our use of recycled plastic and eco-refills; we also have a long-standing partnership with TerraCycle® to transform difficult-to-recycle items into something useful. However, whilst some of us may have more time on our hands, why not do some upcycling? It's a great way to reduce waste, reuse your packaging and get creative at home!
How Are We Upcycling?
Transform your Almond Milk Concentrate jars into tiny plant holders. So easy: simply clean the jar, place some compost in it, and add one of your favourite plants.
STORE YOUR JEWELLERY
When your scented candle is finished, remove any remaining wax and the wick, then use the beautiful jar to store your necklaces, rings and earrings. Simple, but very effective.
ORGANISE THE KITCHEN
Once your face mask jars have finished, clean the jar and use it to hold herbs, spices and even dried fruit, nuts or a little home made pudding.
Another Life For Your Eco-Refills
HIKING WATER BOTTLE
Take an empty eco-refill, wash it, refill it with water and voila, perfect drink bottle for weekend hikes.

BODY CREAM POTS TO CACTUS HOLDERS
These plastic pots are perfect for holding small cactus plants. Just fill them with potting compost (a special cactus mix is best), gently add your cactus (be careful if it's prickly!) and watch it grow (OK, that may take a while...)
USE AN ECO-REFILL INSTEAD
Simply pierce holes for drainage, fill with compost and sow your seeds. Once your plants are ready to go outside, you can rinse the sachet out and put it away for next year. You can also store it flat, which takes up less room.
