L'Occitane Green Day 2020

The L'Occitane Green Day will take place from 14th -16th August 2020 and as they celebrate for every eco-refill purchased over this period, £5 will go to supporting our local partnership with Surfers Against Sewage! Refilling has been part of the brands ethos since L’OCCITANE’s conception, when founder Olivier Baussan sold his products at markets around Provence. He encouraged customers to bring back glass bottles to be refilled or recycled at a glass factory in Nice.

Since then, L’OCCITANE has maintained this ethos; we launched TerraCycle beauty recycling points in all UK boutiques, we have only ever used paper bags, we work with Loop Industries TM in order to achieve the goal of using 100% sustainable PET in 100% of L’OCCITANE product packaging meaning that products are encased in recycled and recyclable plastic, and we have designed eco-refills for 25 product lines across skincare, body care and hair care.

This August, as L'Occitane focus on reducing waste, and what better way to do so than by refilling your most loved L’OCCITANE products consciously, for me that is the Almond Shower Oil.  The current L’OCCITANE refill pouches launched in 2008, are available across 15 different product lines, in both skincare, and body care! I am a huge fan of the L'Occitane refill process, before the Lockdown, I used to take my empties to be re-filled as often as I could, removing the need to use plastic bottles more than necessary.  Each of the eco-refills use up to 90% less plastic, reducing L’OCCITANE’s plastic consumption by 10%. The aim for 2020 is to save at least 170 tons of plastic.

Surfers Against Sewage have a 30 year history of protecting our oceans and beaches. One of their many achievements is having contributed to 98.5% of England’s bathing waters passing the Bathing Water Directive’s minimum standards in 2016, compared to what would have been only 27% in 1990 when they started campaigning on the sewage issue.  Their Mission: Surfers Against Sewage believe in thriving oceans and thriving people. Connecting everyone to the ocean and creating communities of people who want to make real change happen.

  2. I haven't tried that shower gel, but everyone raves about it. I love the fact that they have an eco-refill. It's something other brands -esp. those environmentally conscious, I'm looking at you, TBS, should be doing by now.
