Reducing waste with L’OCCITANE

Less waste, more beautiful Less waste, more beautiful

Less waste, more beautiful

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! 

Less new plastics, more green for the Earth

More than 10 years of using recycled plastic bottles

Do you know why the bottles in our hair care range have a green color? 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!

Zero ingredients wasted

An important part of reducing waste is making sure we make full use of the ingredients we harvest. Every part of our Almond and Shea nuts are used, including the shells, so that absolutely nothing goes to waste.

Every little bit matters when it comes to reducing waste, which is why we have removed cellophane wrappers from our boxes. We have also printed usage instructions of our products on the inside of the boxes they come in, reducing the need for an extra product leaflet.
