How to Recycle ĀTHR Beauty Products

From the beginning, we’ve designed all our packaging with recycled and biodegradable materials that could be easily recycled in your standard recycling bin. Having said that, the world of recycling has changed (with many facility closures) and standards vary in every area. So, we’ve put together an updated guide to help you recycle everything ĀTHR!

How to Recycle ĀTHR Products At-Home or Through Pact Collective

STEP 1: Check out what each ĀTHR Beauty product is made of. You can find this info below or under the ‘recycle me’ tab on each product’s page.

STEP 2: Check if your local recycling facilities accepts the materials listed below (and if they have minimum size requirements for that material). 

  • If they do, great! Follow the instructions for each product below and toss it in your standard recycling bin.
  • If they don’t accept the listed materials, you can recycle all products through our partner Pact Collective! You can return packaging in person at Credo Beauty (USA) or HBC (Canada) or return via mail. The pact bins accept a wide range of beauty packaging (check their takeback guidelines here, so you can save up your empties and drop them all off in one trip!

Once you know what materials your local facility accepts, you can use this info to sort all the packaging around the house. It’s worth checking to avoid wishcycling - you might be surprised what they do/don’t accept.


What Our Packaging Is Made Of

All ĀTHR Beauty packaging is made from materials that are easily recyclable when thoroughly cleaned and disassembled before entering the recycling stream. Due to recent recycling shutdowns however, these materials may not be accepted in all areas. So, we’re here with the uber-specifics on our packaging materials so that you know whether to recycle it in your standard bin or through our partner, Pact Collective! We always suggest checking with your local recycling facility to be sure they accept each material. If you have any questions, send us a message anytime!
