London Drugs is partnering with L’Oréal’s consumer products division and TerraCycle to allow shoppers to recycle empty cosmetics products in all London Drugs locations across Canada.

Customers will be able to recycle their beauty empties, including foundation, mascara, lipsticks, in the cosmetics section of their favourite London Drugs location. Once collected, TerraCycle will break down the waste, separate it by material, and convert it into usable recyclable forms.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating once again with TerraCycle, and with our excellent partner L’Oréal to give our customers the chance to recycle their cosmetics and help us in our commitment to sending zero waste to landfills,” says Clint Mahlman, London Drugs president and COO. “We are inspired by the communities where our stores are located, in their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible, so are confident this will be a popular program in our stores across Western Canada. Our long history of finding innovative and responsible ways for customers to reduce their environmental impact is something we are proud to provide to our customers.”

Carole Maury, brand director at L’Oréal Canada says the company wanted to “develop a program that would empower Canadians to commit to a greener future. We are thrilled to provide an opportunity to our consumers to integrate sustainable shopping practices that can enable everyone to be a part of the change.”
