How it works

Participating in your home or business is completely free and very simple to do.

  1. Create a free TerraCycle account online and join the Garnier Green Beauty Recycling Program.
  2. Collect your empty skincare product product packaging in any cardboard box.
  3. When you have collected up a few months of waste and you're ready to send a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Request a postage label” and follow the prompts.
  4. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box, before dropping it off at your nearest post office for free.

What happens to the waste
