We are aiming to make recycling Garnier easy

Our Initiative

We believe in taking care of the world around us so we’ve partnered with award-winning company TerraCycle® to provide a free and simple solution to ensure recycling Garnier beauty products is easy, no matter where you live in the UK*.

What is TerraCycle®?

TerraCycle® is widely considered the world leader in collection and reuse of non-recyclable, post-consumer waste. New products with a new purpose – and their ultimate goal is to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. To date, over 200 million people are collecting in 21 countries, and 7.7 billion pieces of waste have been collected and recycled, raising over £34 billion for charities around the world.


Our Recycling Commitment

Garnier is committed to sustainable, environmentally-friendly beauty – we strive to preserve biodiversity and minimise our impact on the planet. We continue to look for ways to reduce packaging, increase the use of recycled materials within it and work with our consumers to recycle it. All our cardboard and paper-based packaging is FSC-certified and we are significantly reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions from our factories.

Why Is Beauty Waste An Issue

Most of us are pretty good about recycling kitchen waste but when it comes to the beauty products on our bathroom shelves we still have work to do! That's why we are making it easier to recycle Garnier beauty products. Now, no matter where you live, in the UK or Republic of Ireland, if you can’t recycle through your local waste collection – send it to TerraCycle® and we’ll make sure it’s recycled. Not only will you have the quiet satisfaction of doing the right thing, you will also raise money for good causes. For every item of Garnier packaging sent to us you’ll receive TerraCycle® points that can be redeemed as cash donations to your favourite non-profit organisation – which might be a school, a community centre, a sports club or a charity.


Create your profile at TerraCycle.co.uk, It's absolutely free. At home or in your community. Remember to get friends, family and colleagues involved, and use our free collection boxes if you are public drop-off point! Send your waste to TerraCycle® using a free postage label. Everything TerraCycle receives is recycled.

All Garnier products from the following ranges

TerraCycle® strives to develop effective recycling solutions for items that are not widely recyclable at a local level. For full details on what can be recycled through the programme click here.

A note on aerosol containers:
At this time Garnier aerosols are not accepted as part of the recycling scheme. We are exploring with TerraCycle® the potential for their inclusion in the future, however the good news is that in most parts of the UK, aerosol recycling is possible. More than 75% of local authorities recycle aerosols through kerbside collections. Please visit your local council website to find out how you can recycle aerosols locally. Always make sure your aerosols are empty and recycle the aerosol lids separately.
