BeautyCycle was launched in 2019 and is the first rewarding beauty recycling initiative to be available to My John Lewis members across the UK.
Why have we created BeautyCycle as our solution to beauty waste?
The beauty industry is a big contributor to global pollution, producing around 120 billion units of packaging each year, little of which can be recycled at home.
Working in partnership with a leading global recycling expert, BeautyCycle helps to eliminate this waste by recycling your beauty empties for you and rewarding you in return.
How do I take part?
Step One - Sign up for free to be a My John Lewis member and bring in five or more empty beauty products to our shops. (see here
Step Two - Hand them over at any beauty counter when making your next beauty purchase.
Step Three - Show your My John Lewis card to enjoy £5 off* your next beauty product.
Where do my products go?
From the collection points in our shops, our recycling experts will take your products and either recycle or compost them, or turn them into new products.
