Havaianas Recycling Program

Recycle your Havaianas thongs through this program.

Recycle in partnership with Havaianas

TerraCycle and Havaianas have partnered to create a free recycling program for Havaianas thongs.

You can drop them off at one of your local participating stores* below, or head to the Havaianas website to send in your thongs to be recycled.

*Please note, some stores may be closed at this time due to COVID-related restrictions. Please check with your local store before you plan to drop off your thongs for recycling.

How it works

Once you have loved your Havaianas thongs to death send them to us to be recycled! There are two simple ways you can do this:

  1. Head to the Havaianas website to download a free shipping label to send them in.

    OR
     
  2. Drop them at one of the following participating stores - find your nearest public drop-off point.

They will then be sent to TerraCycle to be given a second life.
 

What you can recycle in this program

Accepted: All Havaianas branded rubber thongs

Not Accepted:

  • Other brands of thongs
  • Havaianas fabric strap thongs
  • Havaianas vegan leather strap thongs

What happens to the waste

Once sent in, your thongs will be sent to TerraCycle to be given a second life! They will be collected at the TerraCycle warehouse, then sent for processing where they will be crumbed into new raw material. This material can then be used for the creation of things like soft fall matting for playgrounds.
