Recycle your Weleda® Soft Touch Plastic Tubes through this programme
TerraCycle® has partnered with Weleda® to ensure that Weleda® packaging that is not easily recyclable in the UK via local kerbside, can now be recycled through this programme. TerraCycle® points earned through public drop-off locations supported by Weleda® Wellbeing Advisors will go towards the Whitely Fund for Nature who is supporting the Global Penguin Society conservation charity.
Read our 'how it works' section below to learn more about the three ways you can participate.
We do not provide collection boxes for private collectors or public drop-off locations for this programme.
Participating is completely free and very easy, there are 3 ways to participate:
1. Search on the interactive map above to see if you have a public drop-off location close by. If there is one, then simply take your accepted waste to the public drop-off location and drop them off during the designated hours.
2. If there isn’t a public drop-off location in place already in your community then you could set up your own public drop-off location. To do so, please join the programme by clicking on "join programme for free" and then fill in this form to complete the process.
3. If there isn’t one already in place where you live, or you aren’t able to set up your own, then you have the option to sign up as a private collector by clicking on "join programme for free" on this page.
As soon as you are a member of the programme (options 2 and 3) and when you want to post a shipment, download a free UPS label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then simply order a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here. UPS will then collect from your location. You can also drop-off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.

TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators and private collectors as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the total weight of the shipment. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
Here is the reward this programme offers:
Natural and organic skincare brand Weleda® was first founded in 1921 and from the very first day sustainability and respect for nature has been at its heart. Whilst all Weleda® packaging is designed to be recycled, some mixed plastic packaging may not be easily recyclable in the UK via local kerbside collection schemes. So Weleda® has partnered with TerraCyle® to ensure that no Weleda® packaging need go to landfill.
