ENSPIRE Contributor: Re’Dreyona Walker
Timeless Skin Care is scaling up its commitment to a healthier planet just in time for Earth Day, as less than a year after introducing their first partnership with international recycling leader TerraCycle, Timeless is launching their new Timeless Skin Care Recycling Program in the US. As one of the fastest-growing beauty brands in the country, Timeless is encouraging their American customers to take part and take action against the global issue of waste.
With so many products falling into a recycling grey zone, TerraCycle offers practical recycling solutions for over 500 different waste streams that were previously unrecyclable. Instead of ending up in a landfill or incinerators, the collected item is cleaned and melted into hard plastic, then remolded to make new recycled products allowing it to rejoin the circular economy.
CEO and Founder Veronica Pedersen says, “As part of our goals for sustainability, as well as our role in the beauty industry, we’re always looking for ways to innovate and reduce our carbon footprint. By expanding our program with TerraCycle, I’m also excited to see our packaging re-invented in the form of other products, anything from a new park bench to picnic tables!” TerraCycle will collect and recycle Timeless plastic packaging that includes the two eye serums, the hydrating HA sprays, and the 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum.
Participation in the Timeless Skin Care Recycling Program is simple, free, and open to any Timeless customer. Simply sign up on the TerraCycle program page and mail in the packaging waste using a prepaid shipping label. As an added incentive, for every shipment of waste sent to TerraCycle through the recycling program, consumers earn points that can be used for charity gifts or converted to cash and donated to the non-profit school or charitable organization of their choice.
“Through the launch of this recycling program, Timeless Skin Care is making it easy for consumers to take care of their skin and the planet,” said TerraCycle founder and CEO Tom Szaky. “Consumers are able to demonstrate their respect for the environment, not only through the products they choose to include in their daily beauty routines but also by taking an active role in how the packaging is disposed of.”
