Recycle your ShiKai® products with TerraCycle®
TerraCycle® and ShiKai® have partnered to create a FREE national recycling program.
Help reduce waste when you recycle ShiKai skin care and personal care packaging.
“We have seen the effects of climate change firsthand here in Sonoma County and are committed to a multifaceted approach around environmental responsibility,” said Jason Sepp, ShiKai president. “With this program, we are pleased to help customers easily recycle product containers - lessening their individual footprints and the need for virgin materials for remanufacture while helping keep waste out of landfill. This is one step in a series of commitments we will be sharing throughout the year ahead.”

What is TerraCycle?
TerraCycle is a recycling company that specializes in recycling typically hard-to-recycle waste which is not processed by local councils, like cosmetic product packaging (find out more here).
TerraCycle strives to eliminate the idea of waste by offering a range of free national recycling programs that are funded by brands. TerraCycle reuses, upcycles and recycles the waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it.
Are ShiKai products recyclable?
Technically yes, but local recyclers sometimes don’t have the ability to recycle all of our packaging. Things like pumps and tubes are not always taken by recycling facilities, which is why ShiKai is partnering with TerraCycle to ensure none of our packaging ends up in a landfill or the ocean.
How to recycle ShiKai products?
Once you finish your products (please make sure they’re completely empty), print a FREE prepaid shipping label off our TerraCycle page. Attach the label to any parcel you have around and ship back your empty packaging.
TerraCycle receives the packaging and holds onto it to for us. Once we collect a significant amount, it’s 100% recycled and given a new purpose.
What can I recycle?
All ShiKai packaging that cannot be recycled locally is accepted through our TerraCycle program. These components include: plastic tubes, pumps, jars, and complex closures.
