Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

L’OCCITANE Cares about Mother Earth

  1. Can you tell us about your commitment?

At L’OCCITANE, we worry about the effects of plastic pollution have on nature, the land and sea. We want to focus on a circular economy, where most materials used can go on to have a second life. We want to make recycling accessible to everyone.

 
  1. Why? Where does this commitment come from?

The brand has always been committed to recycling and keeping nature free from pollution. When it was created in 1976, L’OCCITANE launched a bottle-return system for glass bottles, so they could be brought back to a retailer. We believe that it is small steps such as these that can make a big difference in a long run.

 
  1. You have chosen to focus your efforts on plastic – like all cosmetic brands. Is it just a trend?

Since the very beginning of L’OCCITANE, our impact on the environment has always been a major concern. This year is the 10th anniversary of our first 100% recycled bottle and we have launched quite a few since then. Eco-refills have also been one of our most popular products in our shops for over 10 years.

 

L’OCCITANE Big Little Things Program

  1. What does Big Little Things mean?

By doing little things in our daily life such as recycling, we can make a bigger impact together.

 
  1. How do I recycle with L’OCCITANE?

Just bring your empty bottle/s in dry & clean condition (must be full size beauty products, we accept any brands!) to any of the participating 15 L’OCCITANE stores.

 
  1. Can I only recycle L’OCCITANE brand products?

You may collect any brand of waste for this recycling program. 

At L’OCCITANE, our recycling program is different from other beauty brands. We accept empties from all beauty brands, not just L’OCCITANE empties. Our main aim is to reduce waste and plastic usage in the environment hence we encourage everyone to bring back his or her beauty empties to recycle with us and be rewarded for it!

 
  1. Can I recycle other container such as mineral water bottles or makeup?

Right now we do not accept makeup or mineral bottles, etc. The reward program is only applicable to products below by any beauty brands

a. Beauty packaging such as lip balm tubes, makeup remover bottles and pumps, fragrances bottles and pumps, and deodorant sticks. 

b. Skin care packaging such as face care packaging, refill pouches, and dispensers and tubes for shower gels, facial cleansers and body lotions. 

c. Hair care packaging such as pumps and caps from shampoo and conditioner bottles, hair care dispensers and containers, hair product trigger heads, and refill pouches.

  1. Do I need to empty and clean the product containers before bringing it to the store?

Yes, please clean and keep the container dry when you bring it to the store for recycling as we do not have cleaning facilities or services provided. 

 
  1. What is the reward system for this recycling program?

For every empty, full-sized beauty product, we will reward you with 1 “stamp”. After every 6 stamps, we will reward you with a travel size L’OCCITANE product.

 
  1. How do I track my points and redeem my reward?

To reduce paper usage, we will be using a digital recycling card instead (loccitanemy.com/big-little-things). An account will be created when you return your first empty and you can log into your account the day after you have created the online account.

Once you have returned the 6 empties and it is deemed eligible for gift redemption, the selected gift will be highlighted in green and you can proceed to any participating stores to collect the gift.
