Strengthening Supply Chain and Circularity

We have actively reduced our plastic usage and enhanced our in-house recycling capabilities. As a member of the UK Plastics Pact, we remain dedicated to achieving the 2025 plastic packaging targets and support innovation. We also strive to inspire our customers and suppliers to minimise landfill waste and champion a circular economy.​

Our stories so far

THG x The UK Plastics Pact

In our pursuit of the established packaging goals and THG's commitment to transparent accountability, we became a proud member of the UK Plastics Pact (UKPP) in 2022.​

The UKPP members account for two thirds of all consumer packaging used in the UK. It brings together governments, businesses, NGOs and citizens to move away from a linear plastics economy towards a circular system.​

In June 2023, THG submitted its first report to the UKPP, summarising the recyclability of the plastic packaging we placed on the UK market in 2022, which is included in UKPP’s 2022 annual progress report.

Packaging Transition

We’re making significant progress towards our packaging being 100% recyclable or reusable by 2025. ​

In 2022, the recyclability of packaging used for our own brands was at 91%. One of the changes we made was to the LookFantastic Beauty Box: to reduce excess packaging in the thousands of beauty boxes sent out monthly to our subscribers, delivery has been reduced to contain one recyclable outer corrugate box only, resulting in a 70% decrease in carbon footprint and 61% reduction in material end-of-life waste when compared to previous packaging.​

More actions are under the way, including the transition of our iconic protein powder pouch to a monolayered plastic, making it recyclable in store.​

Human Rights in Supply Chain

THG is committed to sourcing goods, materials, and services in an ethical and sustainable way. At the end of 2023, we have published our new THG Supply Chain Standard – this standard sets the minimum expectations of our suppliers and their supply chains across the entire group.​

We also review our Modern Slavery Statement annually. The statement details the steps we take to assess and prevent, to the best extent possible, slavery and human trafficking occurring in any part of our business or supply chains.​

Our commitment is demonstrated not only through our Anti-Slavery Policy but also by our membership of Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trade membership organisations. Through Sedex, we engage with our suppliers to review and audit their environmental and ethical performance, ensuring that responsible practices are being upheld throughout our supply chain.
