Sustainable Beauty

At The Bare Theory, we are passionate about products that do no harm to people or planet. Beauty waste has been a longstanding culprit in the the global waste crisis - the option to refill, repurpose or recycle empty packaging is imperative. It is an ongoing process and many beauty brands are still working towards this goal so we felt the need to help minimise the impact from our store.

The Bare Theory is thrilled to offer an innovative recycling solution for empty beauty packaging that cannot be recycled at home. Simply return your empty packaging to us and it will be packed in our Zero Waste Box™ and sent for recycling. The Zero Waste Box™ system is an all-in-one recycling solution from TerraCycle®. Everything collected through the box is sorted and processed into raw materials that can be reused instead of being sent to landfill.

TerraCycle® explains that most items are in fact recyclable but due to the cost often mean they are destined for landfill. The Zero Waste Box™ provides a solution by recycling the hard-to-recycle so rest assured that anything you buy from us will not contribute to throwaway culture.

As an added bonus, you will receive 10% off any purchase made when you drop your empty beauty containers into our Zero Waste Box™ to be recycled - we just ask that you ensure they are clean and completely dry. 

You can find out more about the amazing work TerraCycle® does, and find other depots for other types of recycling here.

We truly believe in cyclical consumption that gives back to the Earth and with your help we can make change.
