Since its September 2020 launch, the Recycle & Get Rewarded scheme run by Boots & No7 has proven to be a huge success. The scheme has been run in conjunction with ourselves and Scan2Recycle.
- September of this year Boots & No.7 launched a new recycling initiative. Encouraging customers to bring back hard-to-recycle health, beauty, and wellness empties.
- Since its launch, the scheme has seen 104,235 products deposited using the innovative Scan2Recycle technology.
- No7 is the top beauty brand that has been recycled.
- Reworked is taking care of the full-service recycling element of the campaign – As we specialise in innovative ways of dealing with hard-to-recycle plastics.
Since the September launch, Boots has recycled 1,150 kg (over one tonne) of plastic, thanks to the dedication of its sustainability savvy customers. The initiative has seen over 30,000 customers signing up to take part in the scheme, scanning in 104,235 empty products using the Scan2Recycle technology.
The scheme is the first of its kind to come to market, allowing customers to recycle empty health, beauty and wellness products (even from brands not stocked at Boots) – with customers receiving £5 worth of Boots Advantage Card Points when five products are deposited. The scheme is currently available in 50 stores across the UK, find your nearest eligible store here.
