La Zao Eco-box

Rapportez vos recharges usagées !

La Zao Eco-box
Depuis sa création en 2012, Zao suit un cahier des charges très précis qui lui permet d’être la première marque de maquillage rechargeable, certifiée bio* par Ecocert, 100% naturelle* et vegan.

Aujourd’hui nous souhaitons aller plus loin dans notre démarche éco-responsable en mettant en place une solution de collecte, de recyclage et de valorisation des recharges usagées (sticks, flaconnettes, tubes et godets). Celle-ci prend la forme d’une boîte de collecte en carton, la ZAO ECO-BOX, accessible chez les revendeurs Zao.

Vous pouvez ainsi rapporter vos recharges usagées et les déposer dans l’Eco-box. Une fois pleine celle-ci est renvoyée chez Zao qui s’engage à recycler et valoriser son contenu.

À vous de jouer !

ZAO Eco-box, vad är det?

The Zao Eco-box is a collection, recycling and recovery solution for used refills, sticks, bottles, tubes and buckets entirely designed by the Zao brand. It takes the form of a small cardboard collection box available from Zao retailers and guarantees the recycling and recovery of the packaging collected, by selected players within a radius of 200 km around our offices.

Varför erbjuds denna lösning?

With the aim of limiting unnecessary packaging as much as possible, our products are refillable, sold in a reusable fabric pouch, without disposable packaging. Thus, thanks to our bamboo packaging, you have the possibility to replace only the refill of our products.
However, we have realised that these refills, although designed with recyclable materials, are considered as specific waste due to their small size and therefore cannot currently integrate any classic recycling channel. Thus, if we put them in the sorting bin, they will not be recognised in the sorting centre and cannot be recovered.
Furthermore, our customers are a public sensitive to environmental issues and waste reduction, who regularly ask us about the recyclability of our products once they have been used. The Eco-box is therefore also the answer to these growing demands.
Via the Zao Eco-box, we are reinforcing our desire to be irreproachable in the quality of our products, from their design to their end of life. If the recycling of these materials is possible, we wish to guarantee it by offering a collection solution, with the certainty that they will be recovered.

How does it work?






1-Bring them at the point of sale

You bring back and deposit your used Zao refills in the Zao Eco box. Little by little, it fills up.


2-Return at ZAO

Once full, the Eco-box is sent back by post thanks to a return slip available from the ZAO sales department.


3-Reception, sorting, storage

The Eco-box arrives at our premises in the Drôme. Its contents are sorted and the related materials are separated. In total, we will be able to sort up to 10 categories of materials, ranging from different plastics to paper, cardboard, textiles or metals.


4-Valuation

The sorted materials are then weighed. Once the weight required for their handling has been reached (weight varies from one category to another), the materials will be entrusted to professionals within a radius of 200 km around our offices: plasturgists, plastic artists, metallurgists, material handlers and may be given a second life.



Ensuring a preliminary sorting allows us to work with specialised professionals for each of the materials and thus to have more visibility on the associated recovery sector. We have estimated that we could capture up to 1 tonne per year of used refills, sticks, tubes and buckets. This recovery solution is part of a global reflection, thanks to which we guarantee that this specific waste has a second life and is no longer buried or incinerated.

As consumers, your support and participation in this eco-responsible project are fundamental. We are therefore counting on you to deposit your used refills, sticks, bottles, tubes and buckets in the Zao Eco-box and thus enable us to ensure their recovery.

Var kan vi hitta det?

From February 2020, all our retailers will gradually equip themselves with a Zao Eco-box. It will therefore be available in all our points of sale. It's up to you!
