Recycling for worthy causes including Climate change action


 

Several clubs are collecting bottle tops to make chairs using a granulator.

You can now send your bottle tops for free via your local post office. Just pop them in the envelope with : Freepost LUSH GREENHUB ♻️♻️♻️
#lush #recycling #reuse #plasticfree

FAQ – The address you can send them to is Freepost LUSH GREENHUB. Please ensure all bottle tops are packaged well in either a cardboard box or envelope (we do believe this is UK only, we will keep you posted if this changes)

– TYPES OF BOTTLE TOPS YOU CAN SEND : small plastic bottle tops made from any plastic compound (Lush bottle caps, milk, soft drinks, sports cap drinks, fabric softener caps etc). Unfortunately, we are not able to take large, thick plastic lids (like coffee jar lids) as these do not go through the small granulator.

– If you have the ability to recycle bottle tops yourself (this is becoming much more common now), then that’s brilliant! We are just offering an option to anyone who cannot recycle these through their home recycling. We would always encourage people to recycle materials as locally as possible.
