Loved our recycling edit from earlier this year? Good news, it hasn’t stopped there and with our growing awareness of needing to reduce waste to protect our planet, there are many more brands to help you do your bit. So in celebration of ‘National Recycling Week’, from 17-23 October, here’s where else you can recycle (and be rewarded).
Lampoo’s first store outside of Milan opened earlier this year on the King’s Road and is a one-of-a-kind consignment service allowing you to see your pre-loved luxury clothing and accessories with limited hassle. Simply pop your items in store, set the price (following their recommendation) and they’ll do the rest.
‘Beauty Cycle’ at Peter Jones offers a conscious to shop beauty and be rewarded. Available to My John Lewis members (it’s very easy to sign up, if you haven’t already), simply bring in five or more empty beauty products, show your card and receive £5 off your next beauty purchase. Since November 2019, over 1.1 million products have been saved from going to landfill so discover which products you can recycle here.
Donate any clothing or fabrics, even jewellery, (they don’t have to be just Zara!) that you’d like to recycle in store. All garments made from 100% cotton, wool or polyester will be recycled into new fabric, with the rest being turned into materials for the construction or automotive sectors.
Monica Vinader is designed to last a lifetime, but just in case, the Repair, Rewear, Recycle programme will ensure your treasures are expertly cared for. With each piece coming with a five year warranty, the team will be able to help with resizing, repairing or replating completely free of charge. No longer ‘in love’? Recycle your gold or silvery jewellery (from any brand) in store to receive a £20 voucher towards your next purchase. More information can be found here.
Over on Pavilion Road, Sarah Chapman Skinesis has joined forces with TerraCycle to find a recycling solution for your products and packaging. Simply bring your empty products into the Clinic and they’ll be taken away and recycled responsibly.
Astrid & Miyu
‘Astrid & Renew’, their sterling silver recycling scheme, is a great way to ensure less waste and more sparkle. Simply drop your unwanted sterling silver jewels in store (they even accept jewellery from other brands!) and they’ll send them off to be recycle and in return, giving you 1,000 loyalty points (the equivalent of £10) to spend. All proceeds from your recycled jewellery will go to The Felix Project, ensuring you do good for the planet as well as the community. Find out more here.
