Let's get started
1. Prepare your old packaging
We are a tiny team, so before you send your shoebox to us, we respectfully ask the following criteria be met:
- Can we recycle it? Be sure to read the information above to work out if we can recycle it for you. Please send only what we can recycle.
- Make sure the package is clean and dry: Residue of beauty products in packaging means we can't recycle them. Be sure to give your empty packaging a clean before you post it to us. Don't post it if it's wet. Always ensure the empty packaging is dry before you box it up.
- Categorise: We'd love it if you could do your best to ensure all items are separated into categories. This will help us better distribute for effective and efficient recycling.
2. Post to us
Post your box of recycling to us to receive 20% off your next order! Please be sure to include your name, email address and enough recycling to fill your shoe box.
