OUR RECYCLING & CHARITY WORK
The beauty industry is not known for being eco friendly; so at Libra Beauty we have made a conscious decision to make changes where possible to reduce waste and recycle.
We have teamed up with Terracycle and Kicks Count to recycle our beauty packaging. Terracycle is a company that collects certain items that would normally go in landfill and recycles them. Kicks count is a charity that aims to reduce the UK’s stillbirth and neonatal death rate by raising awareness of baby’s movements. We have registered with Kicks count to collect certain waste. We send our items to Terracycle in aid of kicks count who in return make a charity donation to them. Win win!
you can help too!
We are cutting down on single use plastic so we have scrapped individually wrapped biscuits, coffee sachets etc as well as switching to bamboo rather than plastic for our cotton buds etc. We haven’t found a suitable alternative for milk sachets yet so we are recycling these by making eco bricks which can be donated to local building projects.
We have an energy saving plan to switch off lights and electrical equipment when not in use.
Sothys send us our deliveries using bio degradable packaging.
We use all recyclable packaging for the orders we send out (even the tape!)
We try to reuse boxes if possible so we hope you won’t mind if you receive your order in a box that has been used before.
We know there is a long way to go and a lot more than can be done but we do believe that every little helps and we will make more and more small changes where we can. We welcome any suggestions you have for us on what else we can do.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering or are a patient who would like to attend a workshop you can ask at your local unit or visit www.lookgoodfeelbetter.co.uk
We also like to support local charities and local schools.
