We’ve been fans of Atelier Cologne’s divine fragrances for a while now – and with the news that they’ve just launched their own recycling scheme in Hong Kong, we love them even more!
The French fragrance house’s “ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED Recycling Programme” is now up and running at their three standalone Hong Kong boutiques in IFC mall, K11 Musea and Harbour City. With the brand already well-known for crafting scents that showcase natural and sustainably sourced ingredients, the new recycling scheme marks the latest step in their commitment to looking after the environment.
To recycle your Atelier Cologne bottles, simply return any of the brand’s empty product containers – ensuring they have been rinsed, dried and had their labels removed – to the special boxes located in the designated stores. You’ll receive one stamp for each container you return, with complimentary gifts redeemable for every two, four or six stamps you collect – giving you that extra incentive to keep recycling.
All the collected containers will be donated to homegrown social enterprise V Cycle, who work with businesses throughout the city to recycle waste and support the circular economy. Their recycling schemes also help to fund community programmes that enhance the lives of disadvantaged elderly and young people in Hong Kong, so it really is a great cause to support.
If you need further motivation to go green, Atelier Cologne will also be giving away a free 30ml refillable travel perfume bottle for every 100ml perfume purchased – encouraging customers to adopt reusable containers on-the-go rather than relying on disposable minis.
We’ll see you down at the recycling boxes soon!
