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 Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle.
  2. Collect your empty facial skincare product packaging (this can be from any brand) in any cardboard box.
  3. When 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 you can recycle in this programme

Accepted waste: Any brand of facial skincare packaging listed below:

•  Plastic bottles, tubes and pots.

•  Lids, droppers, pumps and pots

•  Glass bottles and jars (see conditions)

Conditionally accepted: Clear and coloured glass packaging. Please first check with your local council, as it may already be kerbside recyclable in your region. Otherwise, you may include it in your collections for this programme.

Not accepted:

•  Sachets and sheet masks

•  Cardboard external packaging (place in kerbside recycling)

Best practices for recycling

Please remove any excess product before sending it to us for recycling.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the beauty product packaging is sorted, cleaned and melted into pellets that can be remoulded to make new recycled products. Click here for more information about our recycling process.


Return, Recycle, Reward. We have to give plastic a second life. The Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle requires you to send a minimum of four products at a time for recycling.  All beauty brands’ facial products will be accepted and you will receive a $15.00 Emma Lewisham voucher for your efforts when you ship your waste.



For Emma Lewisham, achieving a meaningful difference means setting a new standard in skincare: proving that luxurious, high performing skincare doesn’t have to come at a trade-off to women’s health or the planet's.
