Thank you for choosing to purchase an Illuminating Brighten Your Day Crème refill pod and keep your packaging in use! Please remember not to throw out your empty pod - simply pop it out and send it back to Emma Lewisham (using their free returns label) to be sterilised and refilled through their circularity initiative - Emma Lewisham Beauty Circle.
By purchasing a refill you are reducing your impact by:
- 63% less CO2 emissions*
- 60% less energy**
- 45% less water**
- Minimising the 114 billion units of beauty packaging discarded each year***
Emma Lewisham thinks endlessly producing new things instead of using what we have makes zero sense. Why would we extract new things from the ground, use more energy, more water and produce more carbon, when we can use the valuable materials we already have. It also makes zero sense to recycle* things after a single use (using more energy and omitting more carbon) when they are strong enough to last many uses! Sounds silly doesn’t it? Emma Lewisham agrees. It’s time to go circular. Let’s keep our precious resources in circulation and lower our impact together.
Disclaimer - Did you know that even your ‘100% recyclable’ beauty packaging isn’t being recycled through your kerbside collection? Despite being technically recyclable, the economics don’t stack up, so to landfill it goes. This is why Emma Lewisham takes responsibility for all their packaging and partner with specialised recyclers as part of their Beauty Circle initiative.
