While all our plastic packaging is recyclable, the reality is that most of what we put in our curb-side recycling bins doesn’t end up getting recycled. Knowing this, we knew we could do better. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle to launch the A bit Hippy Free Recycling Program.
TerraCycle is an innovative waste management company with a mission to eliminate the idea of waste. We love what they do and what they stand for so much that we simply had to get onboard. Essentially, they develop recycling programs to ensure that hard-to-recycle rubbish is actually recycled and given a new lease on life. You can finally sleep better (beauty sleep is a real thing) knowing your fave skincare tubes and bottles won’t end up in landfills.
This program is free and easy, ‘cause you know, we like to keep it simple ‘round here. Ready to give it a go? Amazing! Feeling a bit daunted? That’s okay too. Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you on your merry (and sustainable) way!
How does it work?
Sign up to the AbH x TerraCycle club!
Collect all your eligible packaging components, store them in a cardboard box ready to be shipped.
3. Print Label
Once you’re ready to send of your packaging to be recycled, print off your free shipping label. You can find this in your TerraCycle account – just click ‘Request a postage label.’
Ship that baby off and let us do the rest!
What's Accepted & What's Not?
Future Sustainability Goals
We’re well aware that recycling is just part of the battle and while we’re super proud to be partnering with TerraCycle, we know there is still a way to go. Now we’ve levelled up on our recycling efforts, it’s time to improve our processes to reduce and reuse!
A few thangs we're working on:
Sustainable refill options. So you can reuse your uber-cute A bit Hippy packaging time and time again.
A further reduction of our carbon footprint with a goal to make this measurable within 3 years.
Provide customers with an opportunity to reuse their existing pumps when ordering a 500ml pump bottle.
Add more paper packaging options to our range for products like Deodorant and Lip Balm.
Got a mighty fine idea? Let us know!
