TerraCycle Partnership for Recycling
TerraCycle, a global leader in the collection and repurposing of complex waste items, has partnered with MONAT to create a recycling program for MONAT product containers and reduce the amount of plastic in the environment.
Participation in the recycling program is easy and free: sign up on the TerraCycle program page at https://www.terracycle.com/monat and mail in empty MONAT Skincare, Haircare and Wellness packaging using the provided prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be re-molded to make new recycled products.
“Since our founding, TerraCycle has made it our mission to ‘Eliminate the Idea of Waste’ and provide solutions for difficult-to-recycle items that are not traditionally recyclable curbside,” said Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle. “By encouraging consumers to rethink what is waste, this program helps build awareness that solutions do exist for items that may seem unrecyclable.”
“Partnering with a world leader in recycling like TerraCycle helps to fulfill our mission of maintaining a healthy planet by caring for our environmental impacts. It also helps us address one of the most important areas of concern to our stakeholders and our industry: plastic pollution,” said Miguel Pena, director of environment and sustainability for MONAT. “This is the first initiative to launch as part of the comprehensive sustainability program we’ve been very thoughtful to develop, which centers around three pillars as the foundation for our future, including a healthy planet, purposeful business and products, and joyful people and communities.”
New Products Designed for Sustainable Innovation
MONAT has also launched two new sustainability-oriented products, Sustainable Refill Pouches and Soothing Micellar Shampoo. Best-selling shampoos from MONAT, including Renew™ Shampoo, Volumizing Revive™ Shampoo and MONAT BLACK™ Shampoo + Conditioner, will now be packaged in the new MONAT Sustainable Refill Pouch, a flexible, environmentally friendly pouch that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, packaging waste volume, and energy used in packaging production. Soothing Micellar Shampoo is a sustainable, fragrance-free shampoo that is packaged in a 100% post-consumer recycled bottle, a first for MONAT.
“As MONAT grows, it’s critical that we look at our global impact and ensure we are positioned as a global leader in the health and beauty industry with a robust sustainability program,” said Stuart MacMillan, president of MONAT Global. “Building a healthy planet is an important part of our global impact mission and we have just gotten started by implementing this new partnership with TerraCycle.”
