Recycling is very close to our founder, Sophie Oliver's, heart. Known by her friends as a bit of a stickler for recycling, often taking other people's rubbish home to make sure it gets recycled!
Our Baie Circular has been in the pipeline for some time, now it is finally here!
Introducing Baie Circular
Some of our product packaging has plastic or plastic and metal mix that requires specialist recycling to ensure it is dealt with responsibly. Unfortunately general household recycling schemes don’t offer this facility. So many cosmetic products inevitably don’t get recycled because of their complex structures such as what you find in a pump, a metal spring inside a plastic housing that's hard to break apart. Also, not all plastics will be recycled by household recycling centres.
To provide a solution to this we launched the Baie Circular Recycling Scheme which takes back our hard to recycle plastic packaging to ensure it is recycled through a specialist recycler, Terracycle. This is our contribution to moving towards a circular economy. Every part of the product, cap, pump, collar and bottle metal or silver, will be recycled, enabling you to give a second life to your used Baie packaging.
While there is a sizeable cost involved in ensuring these items are recycled correctly, for helping us to with our mission, that items don't end up in landfill. We wanted to offer you something in return, because most schemes don't offer anything and we believe that this joint effort . That is why we are offering our customers a meaningful rewards incentive for your efforts!
To check what plastics your local services will accept (for the UK), please go to www.recyclenow.com and choose to add your postcode to see what you can recycle from home.

With regards to our ongoing commitment to a circular economy, we will use up all packaging we have on hand and continue with our scheme to ensure it gets dealt with responsibly and gets given a second life. However, we are dedicated to switching to glass in the future.
