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 perfume bottles with us
Recycling our perfume bottles at The Perfume Shop couldn’t be easier! Simply, bring your empty bottle or bottles to your nearest store, and we’ll recycle them for you!
As a big thank you when you recycle perfume bottles through our scheme, we’ll give you 10% off your next purchase in-store or online.
Eden Reforestation projects
As part of our recycling service, we have teamed up with Eden Reforestation Projects to ensure that for every bottle recycled, we’ll donate the cost of planting one tree to Eden. This is 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 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 to continue their vital work 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
- Helps to conserve natural resources such as wood, metal and sand
- Reduce carbon emissions from sourcing and processing new materials
- Save energy as less energy is used to make products from recycled materials than new materials
- Protect ecosystems and reduces disruption to 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 buying a refillable 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 including the classic Dior Sauvage and the contemporary Code by Armani. If a floral fragrance is more your thing then the sparklingly sweet notes of Alien Goddess from Mugler has got your name written all over it!
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?
