L’Occitane Eco recharge refills
L’Occitane, sells plastic pouches to refill for their Eco-recharge refill range. They are replacing their bottles, which are at least partially recyclable, with unrecyclable flexible packaging pouches which only cover small number of refills before needing to be replaced themselves. While L’Occitane is trialing in-store refill stations, these are only currently located in just 6 stores across the United Kingdom out of the 50+ available in the country. These refill pouches are a lazy solution which does not avoid unnecessary plastic and should not count as true refill.
