As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end! So, when you enjoy the last few sprays of your favourite fragrance, what do you do with your empty bottle? Instead of letting it gather dust on your dressing table or sending it to a landfill with your household waste, you can now bring it back in-store and we’ll recycle it for you, for free!
Read on to learn more about The Perfume Shop’s bottle recycling service, our partner Eden Reforestation Project and how you can get 10% off your next order.
How to Recycle Your Empty Bottle
Recycling your empty perfume bottles at The Perfume Shop couldn’t be easier. Bring your empty bottle or bottles to your nearest store, and we’ll ensure our recycling partner disposes of all bottles in an environmentally friendly way.
As a big thank you to you for recycling your bottles through our scheme, we’ll give you 10% off your next purchase in-store or online.
Eden Reforestation Projects
At The Perfume Shop, we’re passionate about doing everything we can to be planet positive. So as part of our recycling service, we have teamed up with Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) to help give back. For every bottle recycled, we’ll donate the cost of planting one tree to Eden to help further their fantastic work.
Eden Reforestation Projects work around the world to help communities combat the devastating effects of deforestation. As one of the most successful reforestation organisations, they plant millions of trees every month to provide a habitat for wildlife, replenish the soil needed for farming and provide needed jobs to thousands of villagers in nations such as Madagascar, Nepal and Kenya.
Donations fund all their work, so by bringing your empty bottles back to The Perfume Shop, you can help them restore the environment and change lives for the better.
Benefits of Recycling
Recycling is crucial to the future health of our planet. From recycling household waste to empty beauty products, here are just a few reasons why improving your recycling habits can make a big difference:
- Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills
- Conserve natural resources
- Prevent pollution by reducing the need to collect raw materials
- Cut climate-changing carbon emissions
- Save energy
- Protect ecosystems and wildlife
Reuse or Refill
As well as recycling your empty perfume bottles, you can also give them a new lease of life by reusing them or by buying a refillable bottle.
Aside from the scent itself, one of the best things about perfume is the beautiful bottle it comes in. So, when it runs out, instead of throwing away the bottle, why not try upcycling it into something new? For three creative ideas on how to give your empty perfume bottle a new lease of life, check out our upcycling article here: How to upcycle your perfume bottle.
Refillable scents are a great way to eliminate unnecessary waste, plus you will not have to get rid of a beautiful flacon from your dressing table! At The Perfume Shop, we offer a great range of his and her scents that are available in refillable options from the classic Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel to Terre d’Hermes by Hermes. If a contemporary floral fragrance is more your thing then My Way by Armani is the one for you and for a mouth-watering blend of gourmand notes, add Angel by MUGLER to your eco-friendly list! But it doesn’t stop there! Check out these planet-positive scents:
FEEL GOOD WHEN YOU SMELL GOOD: PLANET
At The Perfume Shop, we are as passionate about minimising our impact on the planet as we are about perfume. And as you can imagine, that’s quite a lot! So over the last few years, we’ve been working hard to make changes that matter, from consciously reducing our carbon footprint to launching 100% recyclable, vegan and cruelty-free Own Brand collections as part of our Feel Good When You Smell Good social purpose efforts.
