Recycling Program

The Dirt Company

We are excited to be part of the The Dirt Company refill program. Once you've finished with your refill packet, either drop it off when you pick up your next order in Thornbury or leave it out for us to collect when we do your next delivery. EASY! We'll then return these to The Dirt Company to be refilled. 

Weleda Recycling Program

We are delighted to be part of Weleda's recycling program. Weleda have partnered with TerraCycle to bring you a program that we hope you'll love and it's very easy and free of charge for you to use. Give back any Weleda packaging that is hard to recycle in your kerbside collection and we will collate them and get them to TerraCycle to be recycled into park benches or playground equipment.

What do I need to do?

  1. Keep all your empty tubes, lids, pumps and containers of Weleda products (Sorry but we can't accept any other brands at this stage for TerraCycle)                                 
  2. Make sure the tubes and bottles are squeaky clean, an easy way to clean them is to cut them in two. Cut the tubes, throw them in a bucket and put the bucket in the shower with you; that way you're reusing water to clean them rather than fresh tap water.   
  3. Return them to The Living Co - you can either leave them in the lockers when you pick up your next order or if you're getting an order delivered let us know and we can pick them up then. 

    Bulk Containers 

    We repurpose containers from the community to supply our bulk products such as laundry powder, dishwashing liquid and laundry soaker. Once you have finished using the container and if you can't repurpose it, we'll happily take it back to re-use. Just either leave it in the locker when you pick up your order or let us know that you're leaving it on the porch when we deliver your next order.
