We can help you recycle your Beauty Products & Packaging with TerraCycle® via their Zero Waste Box™ solution. Once your packaging/waste is sent to us and placed in the Zero Waste Box™, we ship it to TerraCycle® where it is sorted, turned into plastic granules and transformed into new products.

By purchasing this product, you can send us up to 10 items for recycling by TerraCycle®. This recycling scheme is specifically for Beauty Products and Packaging such as:

  • Facial skincare: Lip balm tubes, face soap dispensers and tubes, lotion bottles, lotion tubes, lotion dispensers and jars, non-pressurized shaving foam tubes, lip gloss tubes.
  • Makeup packaging: mascara tubes, eye liner pencils and cases, eye shadow tubes, concealer tubes and lipsticks.
  • We accept any plastic, metal and soda-lime glass beauty packaging. Please do not dispose of broken glass in the box.

We are now offering this service as we sell a handful of items which cannot be typically recycled such as mascara tubes and some black plastic lids. You are welcome to return these to us for recycling and also include products you have purchased elsewhere, that we hope you have replaced with more eco-friendly alternatives.

Included in the cost:

  • Recycling of up to 10x items.
  • One prepaid return label which we will either email to you to print at home or if you have ordered other products from us, we will print the label for you and include it in your parcel.
  • The Kind Store collecting your items to be recycled, which we will send back to TerraCycle® in bulk.
  • Processing and recycling of the materials by TerraCycle®. So instead of being landfilled or incinerated, the contents of the box will be sorted and turned into raw materials that can be reused.

Please note, the majority of the cost charged by The Kind Store to our customers is for the returns postage label. We have heavily subsidised the cost of recycling your beauty products.

Why we use TerraCycle®: TerraCycle® is a highly-awarded and globally recognised recycling company that develops zero waste solutions for difficult-to-recycle waste streams. 

These will then be sent to TerraCycle® for recycling. So instead of being landfilled or incinerated, the contents of the box will be sorted and turned into raw materials that can be reused.

Any queries, drop us an email at hello@thekindstoreonline.co.uk.

Zero Waste Box Shipping Notes:

For the Zero Waste Box system to work effectively and safely, please follow these simple shipping guidelines on how and what you can ship back to us:

  1. Only send in items this system accepts. Sending in items that fall outside the selected category causes contamination and the need for added separation, which increase costs. This includes (but not limited to) liquid and food waste, cardboard, paper, compostable material such as PLA and PHA, mixed fibre fabric, borosilicate glass and electronic waste.
  2. Do not send in household items that may be considered hazardous waste. These include items such as lithium-ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, oil-based paint or medical sharps, organics, broken glass, biomedical waste, soiled nappies, or expired medication. Do not send in anything sharp, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.
  3. Do not ship dripping packages. Please make sure all excess product has been removed before putting it in your Zero Waste Box. If you choose to rinse your items, please note that the system must be completely dry prior to shipping.
