Since our beginnings, we have believed in a functional, minimal and sustainable approach to our products and packaging.
Accordingly, it is a pleasure to partner with HK Recycles and invite customers to return their emptied aluminium tubing, as well as plastic and glass cosmetic packaging, to any Aesop signature stores and counters in department stores across Hong Kong, where it will be collected and transferred for future recycling.
Kindly note that we accept two types of plastic packaging. The accepted plastic can be identified on each product by either a PET symbol (resin code 1), or a PP symbol (and resin code 5), as guided by the international recycling system. We kindly ask that empty plastic and glass containers are rinsed prior to return, though labels do not need to be removed. Our consultants will be pleased to rinse aluminium tubing once you have returned it.
We invite you to return these items to any Aesop signature stores and counters in department stores across Hong Kong. You are welcome to bring packaging from other brands as well as Aesop vessels.
We are committed to running a sustainable business and are constantly striving to strengthen our sustainability practices. We are currently developing our ten-year sustainability vision, which will include environmental initiatives across Aesop’s full value chain. Our environmental initiatives will continue to focus on:
• Measuring, reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions across the value chain
• Increasing transparency across our supply chain and on ethical sourcing of materials
• Improving sustainable design and innovation in our product development, retail and office design
• Enhancing operations to reduce resource consumption and waste
