Pact Collective started around a year ago with a mission to help beauty become more circular, and the non-profit has several plans to tackle the industry's biggest waste problems.
CosmeticsDesign spoke with Pact Collective about how they are working towards a circular economy, why they believe that transition matters and what the challenges are.
Tell me a bit about Pact Collective’s mission around circularity in personal care and cosmetics.
The beauty and wellness industries generate over 120 billion packages every year, with most ending up in landfills or incinerators. The packaging is often too small, too flexible, or made of too many materials to be mechanically recycled through curbside recycling programs. Pact is on a mission to change this.
