"We understand our customers care about sustainability, and we want to help them move toward a zero-waste beauty routine so they can look great and do good at the same time," said
How does it work?
October 1, customers can bring their empty beauty products to any Nordstromor NordstromLocal to be recycled. BEAUTYCYCLE boxes will be available in the beauty department. Nordstromwill send the content of these boxes to TerraCyclewhere they are cleaned and separated into metals, glass and plastics.
- Those materials are then recycled based on the material composition. For example, plastics are recycled into a wide range of new products including park benches and picnic tables, while metals are reused as base materials for stamped product applications like nuts, bolts, washers and rings.
