Nordstrom’s BeautyCycle Program Reaches Recycling Milestone

BeautyCycle, Nordstrom’s beauty take-back and recycling program accepting all brands of beauty packaging, has reached a major milestone: collecting 50 tons of beauty packaging – the weight equivalent of a humpback whale.
This brings Nordstrom halfway to its goal to collect 100 tons of beauty packaging to be recycled by 2025 as it works to help consumers move toward a zero-waste beauty routine.

Recycling Empty Beauty Product Packaging

Each year, more than 120 billion units of plastic packaging are produced by the beauty industry, but less than 9% gets recycled. With BeautyCycle available at all Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and Nordstrom Local stores across the contiguous U.S., customers have full access to drop off their empty beauty product packaging to be recycled.
