Our Brand Ambassador Susie Amy wrote a blog about our new Terracycle Recycle Zero Waste Beauty Box when she was last in our Boutique.
"When I visited the ARK Skincare boutique in Haslemere village last week I noticed a new addition to the shop – a TerraCycle Zero Waste Box. As good as we’ve all become (I hope) at recycling – our plastics aren’t always being recycled – and instead ending up in landfills. There is SO much packaging, so much plastic – and beauty as well as food contributes to this hugely.
TerraCycle is a recycling company that has developed zero waste solutions for difficult to recycle product, waste and packaging. The waste is sorted and reused – making new products – rather than the same packaging heading to a landfill."
Shampoo bottles and caps
Conditioner bottles and caps
Hair Gel tubes and caps
Non pressurised hair spray bottles
Lip Gloss and Lip Balm tubes
Soap dispensers and tubes
Lotion Bottles and tubes
Mascara tubes, concealer tubes, eye shadow tubs
Basically any clean packaging apart from perfume bottles, aerosol, and nail polish.
"ARK Skincare are hugely passionate about the environment and I love that they have taken this step in their boutique. Every little helps – and the more companies and people making these changes – the more aware we all become. Anyone is welcome to come into here in Haslemere and use the box. I’m going to save a bag at home to bring every time I come, and stop throwing everything into my regular recycling bin."
