Rodan + Fields has joined The Recycling Partnership, a nonprofit organization focused on improving recycling systems through better recycling access, education and infrastructure, advanced packaging circularity, and through the support of research and policies that improve recycling in the United States.
Members of the partnership include Burt's Bees, Church & Dwight, Dow, Eastman, Colgate Palmolive, Henkel, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Walgreens, Walmart, Silgan, P&G and L'Oreal.
Rodan + Fields aims to render 75% of its packaging recyclable or refillable by 2025. To illustrate, newer products, such as its hair care collection, include at least 50% post-consumer-recycled plastic, plastic alternatives such as aluminum and glass, refillable bottles, and sustainably sourced paperboard.
"We are incredibly honored to partner with The Recycling Partnership to support their mission to improve recycling systems in the United States," said Lindsay Vignoles, director of environmental, social and governance for Rodan + Fields. "We have made a concerted effort to improve our environmental footprint by designing waste out of our packaging and offering a free recycling program for R+F consumers but recognize that more needs to be done to keep materials in use through recycling."
"Our longstanding commitment to do good for people and the planet involves all of our stakeholders from our employees and independent consultants to our suppliers and nonprofit partnerships," said Jessica Raefield, chief human resources officer at Rodan + Fields. "We are thrilled to invest in The Recycling Partnership, an organization with a proven track record of collaborating with government, companies, and communities, to create a more circular economy."
