Sustainable shopping: The retailers making a conscience change

If you're looking for ways to make positive changes for our planet, our retailers have got you covered. To make it easy, we've included a list of exciting recycling initiatives by your most-loved brands so you can go greener this year. These retailers not only offer a recycling service in-store, some will even reward you for doing so!

Return and recycle

Mecca Maxima
To ensure your beauty empties don’t end up in landfill, Mecca has partnered with TerraCycle, the global leaders in recycling the unrecyclable. Rather than throwing away your already-loved bottles, pots, tubes, and palettes, TerraCycle’s recycling program sends back your beauty waste, ready to be sorted, processed, and transformed into something new (and just as beautiful). Next time you hit pan or have squeezed as much as you can out of your favourite beauty, give your local MECCA a visit and pop your clean empties into a labelled bin, or pass them on to a team member at the registers.

Priceline Pharmacy
As part of their ‘Greener Together' recycling program, Priceline Pharmacy will take your makeup (any brand) and recycle it into something new. With the support of Maybelline and TerraCycle, they’re cutting down landfill and protecting Mother Earth. Simply drop off your empty makeup products at the recycling stations located inside your local Priceline Pharmacy. Sister Club members can also receive 50 Bonus Sister Club points every month when you recycle your makeup empties. Find out more >

Each year tons of clothes and textiles end up in our landfills, but as much as 95% could be used again. The H&M garment collecting initiative was created to decrease the waste and close the fashion loop. They want your old textiles back, from any brand, in any condition. By reusing and recycling they will get a new life. H&M has recycling boxes in all clothing stores around the world. All clothes and textiles are welcome – from all brands and in any condition. Drop off your unwanted textiles to any H&M store in the garment-collecting box — usually next to the cash desks. Find out more here >

Planet-loving products

With an increasing number of retailers offering sustainable ranges, you'll be spoilt for choice. Check out the exciting, planet-loving products these brands have to offer.

Factorie is a proud member of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), a not-for-profit organisation stewarding the global standards for Better Cotton, and bringing together cotton’s complex supply chain, from the farmers to the retailers. BCI works with a diverse range of stakeholders, from farmers to retailers, to promote measurable and ongoing improvements to social, environmental and economic issues in cotton-farming communities in 21 countries around the world. By 2020, BCI aims to have five million farmers involved in the initiative – producing 8.2 million metric tonnes of sustainable cotton which is 30 per cent of global cotton production.

H&M aims for all their products to be made from recycled or other sustainably sourced materials by 2030, which already applies to 65% of the materials that they use. They also have their Conscious choice collections: pieces created with a little extra consideration for the planet. Each Conscious choice product contains at least 50% of more sustainable materials — like organic cotton or recycled polyester — but many contain a lot more than that. Pineapple leaves, hemp waste, shoreline waste and recycled glass are a few of the materials they’ve used in previous Conscious collections. Find out more here >
