Recycling scheme

collection of amber glass bottles

You know how much we love planet earth, so we have finally implemented a recycling scheme now that we have the facilities to handle it - with rewards for you too! 

We are accepting all glass jars and bottles with fittings. After adequate sterilisation, we will reuse these in our manufacturing line.

Because the aluminium tins are usually subject to wear and tear with time, we don't want these back, but if you could clean them, peel the labels off and toss them into your household recycling, mother nature will thank you. The same goes with the cardboard tubes - these are compostable at home once the labels have been removed. 

How it works

1. Save up your empties and post them to us with your name and email enclosed to:

The Nude Alchemist
Recycling Scheme
24c Essex Street
Christchurch 8011

2. We will then send you a reward* for the following:

  • For 3-7 empty glass containers = FREE SHIPPING on your next order.
  • For 8+ empty glass containers = $10 store credit.

    *Rewards only apply to empties returned directly to us by the customer and will require a minimum spend of NZ$20 to redeem.

    We are also working closely with our retailers on collection points. These collection points will not be eligible for any rewards.
