Be rewarded for reusing
Seems too good to be true? Well, it’s not!
Many of your best-loved beauty and lifestyle brands are already breaking ground in this space. From the plastic-reduction promises being made by our friends at LUSH, to coffee capsule collecting at Nespresso, giving back to M.A.C, and incentives at Sheridan, we’re spilling the tea on the eco-friendly initiatives that are already in motion at some of your favourite stores.
Return, recycle, renew with Sheridan
Sheridan are making it simple to return, recycle and renew, leading the way as Australia’s first homewares brand to offer a solution to textile waste going to landfill.
It’s as simple as dropping off your donations to the recycling bins in store on level 5, and in return, you’ll be rewarded with 10% off your next purchase, T&C’s apply. You’ll also receive a huge helping of peace of mind in knowing that your old quilt covers, sheets and towels won’t end up in landfill. Sheet yeah!

Lush’s 5 Pots Program
We know that feeling of utmost disappointment when you reach the bottom of your favourite pot of BB Seaweed, but no need to fear! After making your way through five pots (which we know will realistically only take you max 2.5 weeks), your skin will be glowing, AND you can head back in store on level 3 to exchange your empties for a Fresh Face Mask. All you have to do is make sure they come back clean – even you can manage that, we believe in you!
Find out more about how LUSH are ridding the world of rubbish through their innovative recyclable initiatives.
Back to M.A.C
Why have six, when you can have seven? Once you’ve made it through six silky sticks of Velvet Teddy, and you’re finally ready to branch out and try a pop of red with Lady Danger, simply return your six empty primary packaging containers to M.A.C, and you’ll receive a free lipstick of your choice. In this case, more really is merrier!
Recycle your coffee capsules with Nespresso
Bringing things back around full circle. Nespresso’s coffee is sustainably sourced from local farmers around the globe, and the high-quality taste is kept fresh in aluminium packaging. These aluminium capsules don’t only protect the taste and quality of your morning cuppa’, they are also infinitely recyclable. Head in store on level 5 to give your capsules a new life.
Find out more about the program, and how you can get involved.
Let’s make Marie Kondo proud
Have you ever all of a sudden been overcome by the urge to rid yourself of the weighted baggage of 15 years’ worth of clothing, and instead, live a minimalist lifestyle consisting of only the bare essentials? Because same. It’s time to make Marie Kondo proud by clearing out the cluttered cupboard and joining the recycled clothing revolution, thanks to the help of H&M and Zara.
H&M will take it all – from the stained t-shirt, to the dress you wore to your ex’s stepsisters’ wedding, and even the lonely sock at the bottom of the sock drawer. You love and care for your garments as long as possible, and H&M will take over when they need a new life. The brand is on a mission to not let fashion go to waste. Join them by dropping your castoff clothes in the garment-collecting box in store on level 4 and be rewarded with a voucher.
Zara want to help make it easy to extend the lifespan of your clothing. You can rest assured that your clothes will be donated, recycled and transformed into new fabrics, or donated in aid of non-profit organisations. Bring the clothes you no longer wear in store on level 4 to kill two birds with one stone – take a leaf out of Marie’s book, and do your not-so-small deed to help our planet, one garment at a time.
Remember, making quality purchases is the most important first step to cutting down on clothing and product waste.
So, what are you waiting for? You’re only six M.A.C lipsticks, five LUSH pots, or one lonely sock away from leaving your mark. Or should we say, reducing it.
