We all know recycling is good for the planet, but sometimes just knowing what you can and can’t recycle makes the whole thing a bit tricky. Can you put your empty mascara tubes and foundation bottles in the bin with your coke cans and milk cartons? And what about hair spray cans and lipstick?

John Lewis & Partners is making it easy for us to recycle our old beauty products with it BeautyCycle scheme. Originally launched in 2019, its allows My John Lewis members to recycle a whole range of beauty packaging in stores around the UK including the Oxford Street store.
