L'Occitane Recycling Program


Respect for the environment is at the heart of L’OCCITANE. From the creation of our formulas to the development of our packaging, L’OCCITANE tries to limit environmental impacts where ever possible. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to provide a collection and recycling programme for our customers to be able to simply recycle their empties at any of the L’OCCITANE boutiques.

Did You Know?

Of plastic is used in each household per year

Is how long it takes for plastic to fully decompose

Of UK landfill waste can be recyclabe

What does TerraCycle® do with the waste it collects?

Once our recycling bin is full, TerraCycle® collects it and, of course, leaves a new one in its place! It then sorts through the waste, which will be shredded, cleaned and transformed into a new raw material. Most of our used containers are made into pellets that can be moulded into new products such as waste bins, storage boxes, or even outdoor furniture.

Since January 2019 when the partnership first started: 
- Over 60,700 units of packaging collected
- Equivalent to 1,800 KG of rubbish out of landfills
