THE WHAT? MOB Beauty has announced the launch of a mail back program for Pact, a non-profit collective launched by the sustainable cosmetics brand and retailers Credo and Hudson’s Bay, and charged with reducing beauty packaging waste.
THE DETAILS The Pact Mail Back Program offers a recycling solution for those who can’t reach one of the collective’s recycling bins, installed in all Credo and Hudson’s Bay stores across the US.
Customers can save their hard-to-recycle beauty packaging until they’ve amassed five to 10 empties, create a mailing label on the collective’s website and send them to Pact in any envelope or box.
THE WHY? Victor Casale, MOB Beauty Co-founcer and CEO, explains, “At MOB Beauty, we are committed to only launching products with sustainable packaging solutions and it was in our search for recycling options that we joined forces with Credo and Hudson’s Bay Company to launch Pact, to address the massive environmental impact of cosmetics waste by educating and providing sustainable solutions for hard-to-recycle packaging. As small packaging and other hard-to-recycle components (such as pumps) are not recyclable in your curbside bin, clients now have both an in-store and mail back solution for recycling empties.”
