Protect your hair… and our Planet

Recycling in partnership with Pantene

TerraCycle® and Pantene have partnered to create a national recycling program for all non-aerosol Pantene packaging. 


Give your hair immunity from future damage.  Pantene's nutrient-rich formula is like a superfood for your hair, preventing up to 90% of future damage*.  So while you make your hair stronger with Pantene, you can also do your part to protect our planet!

How it works

Participating is simple and free.

  1. Sign up for the program. If you don’t have a TerraCycle account yet, create one here

  2. Once in the program, start collecting non-aerosol Pantene packaging in any box you have.

  3. When your collection box is full, log into your account to download and print a shipping label.

  4. Seal up your collection box, affix the printed shipping label onto it. Send via UPS.

What you can recycle

All non-aerosol Pantene hair care packaging including Pantene shampoo and conditioner bottles, flexible plastic packaging such as color packets, flexible plastic tubes, and complex closures

NOTE: Please check for local recycling solutions for #1 and #2 plastics. If no recycling solution exists in your area, you can include this packaging in your shipments through this program.

Best practices for recycling

We encourage you to ship when your box is full of Pantene packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the non-aerosol Pantene packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


Shipments in the Pantene Recycling Program can be any weight to earn points, and 100 points per pound will be awarded.

Awarded TerraCycle points can be allocated toward a variety of charitable gifts or redeemed as a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each piece of Pantene packaging sent in will earn approximately 7 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.07 pounds.
