How to recycle your used make-up for benefits

Words by Abi Scaife

Harrods is making a move towards a greener future by launching a recycling programme for their makeup line.

Sounds interesting! Tell me more.

The scheme will be piloted for 3 months, beginning on Saturday 14th January. For now, the pilot scheme is only being conducted at one in-person store - H Beauty in Milton Keynes.

So, how does it work?

MYGroup, the company Harrods is partnering with for this scheme, have placed recycling bins by the counters where customers can deposit their used cosmetics with the help of H Beauty staff.

By recycling their used cosmetics, customers can get a whole host of rewards from benefits to experiences - both online and in-store.

What can we recycle?

Customers are being encouraged to return used beauty, fragrance and skincare products to the store for recycling. They are even able to return products that are usually considered hazardous or unsuitable for recycling like nail polish and perfume bottles.
