Restore the Earth Recycle Beauty


  Let’s Treat Everyday as Earth Day 


Approximately 5.2 TRILLION pieces of plastic are floating in our oceans and sadly less than 10%  of plastic is estimated to be recycled.  We are so thankful the beauty industry is innovating its sustainability practices, including product packaging choices.  At Lala & Elm, we want to do our part to help leave the Earth better than we found it for future generations.  We are pleased to partner with TerraCycle as a Zero Waste Box location so that you can conveniently recycle your used beauty products.  As a thank you, Ocean Club members earn loyalty points each time they recycle in store.  We kindly ask that all packaging is empty, clean, and free of product residue before recycling.
