ELIMINATING THE IDEA OF WASTE®

L’OCCITANE’s Marie Videau on driving sustainability through research

TerraCycle Include UK Colgate l’Occitane L'Occitane en Provence
For Marie Videau, Group General Manager for Research and Development at L’OCCITANE, the company serves two clients, consumers and nature. How can the travel retail industry reduce packaging waste? There are two main options – either reducing or eliminating waste. One way is with dissolvable packaging or simply by reducing plastic use. It is idealistic to think that we can totally suppress plastic, but we can reduce and recycle it. We work with TerraCycle which recycles waste into new products and cooperate with new entities such as Carbios that offers enzymatic recycling of plastic.
