Okay, let’s start by breaking things down.
It is reported that beauty and skincare packaging amounts to approximately 120 billion units a year, most of which, ends up in landfill and takes over 450 years to break down.
Pretty terrifying right?
Around 70% of the beauty industry’s waste in the UK alone comes from packaging. 14% of it makes it to a recycling plant, only 9% is recycled and the rest heads directly to landfill. (Source: British Beauty Council).
There is such a focus on packaging when it comes to fighting for shelf space and sales and often the more expensive and “luxurious” the product is, the more non-essential packaging you will find.
Nowadays, most consumers are ending up with more packaging than product, and most of that packaging is destroying our planet, our oceans, and our wildlife.
The cosmetic industry is becoming such an environmental issue that the LCA Centre found that if refillable containers were used for cosmetics, a whopping 70% of carbon emissions associated with the beauty industry could be eliminated.
The good news is that consumers want change. In a survey by Hubbub, The British Beauty Council found that:
- 91% of British consumers want less packaging.
- 88% want to be able to refill their cosmetics.
- 90% want clearer information about how to recycle.
Globally, larger corporations have pledged that all their plastic packaging will be designed to be reusable, recyclable, or compostable by 2025, so that’s a start.
Although some smaller companies like us are there already…
