TerraCycle has teamed up with Holt Renfrew to help intercept and properly recycle the nearly 773 million plastic beauty containers that end up in landfills across Canada every year. The Holt Renfrew Beauty Recycling Program will help customers responsibly dispose of beauty packaging waste including compacts, concealer sticks and tubes, eyeliner and lip pencils, foundation bottles and tubes, lipsticks and balms, and mascara tubes. This year-round program offers customers the opportunity to bring all brands of empty and used beauty product packaging to select Holt Renfrew retail locations to drop off and recycle in the provided TerraCycle® Zero Waste Boxes™. When full, the boxes will be returned to TerraCycle for processing and the collected waste will be cleaned, melted and remoulded to make new products. Participation in the Holt Renfrew Beauty Recycling Program is completely free and is open to anyone. Holt Renfrew will also be working with TerraCycle to provide their stores with collections boxes intended to collect and recycle disposable masks in-store and reduce the wave of single-use plastic required due to the pandemic from reaching the landfill.
