M&S Introduces Beauty Takeback Scheme

Marks & Spencer today (Thursday, June 8th) has announced the launch of the M&S Beauty Takeback Scheme. The renowned retailer has partnered with HANDLE, a specialist in beauty recycling, to introduce a remarkable initiative called the Beauty Takeback Scheme. This scheme will be implemented in over 40 Marks & Spencer stores throughout the United Kingdom.

The M&S Beauty Takeback Scheme aims to address the challenge of recycling beauty packaging materials and components that often find their way to landfills. With this collaboration, these hard-to-recycle items will now have the opportunity to be repurposed and transformed into new packaging and products through the recycling process.

This partnership exemplifies Marks & Spencer's commitment to sustainability and the environment, as they strive to reduce waste and promote a circular economy within the beauty industry.

The initiative is estimated to collect over two tonnes of empty beauty packaging from participating, within the first 12 months and on the success of other schemes across its Clothing & Home and Food businesses as M&S continues to support customers to live lower carbon lifestyles.

Plus, to mark the launch, Sparks customers who recycle their beauty packaging through the scheme will receive 10% off Beauty at M&S from 8 June to 5 July.

Carmel McQuaid, Head of ESG at M&S, commented: “We’re passionate about creating simple solutions that help our customers live lower carbon lives. Plastic is one of the biggest challenges facing the beauty industry and whilst there is still lots more to do, we hope this scheme encourages customers to recycle their beauty empties to give them a second life and reduce the amount of packaging that goes to landfill. Alongside our other schemes, including Shwopping and plastic takeback, it’s one of the many ways we’re driving the circular economy on our roadmap to net zero.”

The Beauty Takeback Scheme at Marks & Spencer has specific guidelines regarding the types of beauty packaging accepted for recycling. The drop-off boxes are designed to receive a wide range of items including pumps, pots, compacts, jars, tubes, lids, toothbrushes, and razor handles.

However, there are certain items that are not accepted as part of the scheme. These include aerosols, glass containers, face wipes, sheet masks, cotton buds, razor heads, food packaging, and electrical items.

It's important to follow these guidelines to ensure that only the appropriate materials are recycled through the scheme. By adhering to these restrictions, we can maximize the effectiveness of the recycling process and contribute to a more sustainable future for the beauty industry.
