The Way We Reduce
Our Bottle Return Program
Pure+simple has always been committed to providing safe personal care products and promoting sustainable practices and lifestyles. That’s why we provide our like-minded clients with options that benefit both their skin & bodies, as well as the world around us.
Our Bottle Return Program asks that customers bring back their empty bottles for us to recycle in an effort to reduce our environmental footprint. in exchange for these returned bottles, we offer $1 house credit for each Pure+simple, Holistic Vanity, or Minimalist bottle returned.
Clients can feel good knowing that plastic bottles are sent to Terracycle to be recycled, while ceramic containers are pressure-washed and sterilized in-house at our Toronto production facility.
