The Rodan + Fields Recycling Program expanded in support of the company’s 2025 Do Good goals
TORONTO, (December 15, 2020) – Rodan + Fields, a leading skincare brand in North America, in partnership with international recycling leader, TerraCycle, announce the expansion of the Rodan + Fields Recycling Program, already available in the United States, throughout Australia and Canada.
In line with the company’s Do Good vision, which focuses on Philanthropy, People and Planet, Rodan + Fields has made a commitment to make 75% of all packaging refillable, reusable or recyclable by 2025. To support this goal, the Rodan + Fields Recycling Program is designed to assist Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants and customers in their efforts to reduce the number of beauty products that end up in landfills.
To participate, Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants and customers can sign up on the TerraCycle program page and mail in the empty product packaging using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
“There’s an unquestionable need to reduce waste and ensure our products are designed for a sustainable future,” said Kari Hayden Pendoley, Rodan + Fields Senior Director of Social Impact and Environmental Social Governance (ESG). “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with TerraCycle to empower our Consultants, customers and employees globally to be a part of the solution and take the guesswork out of recycling.”
“TerraCycle’s mission has always been to ‘Eliminate the Idea of Waste’ and, in turn, be kind to the planet,” said Tom Szaky, TerraCycle Founder and CEO. “By joining in the Rodan + Fields Recycling Program, participants have a unique opportunity to demonstrate their respect for the environment by diverting packaging waste from landfills, as well as through the products that they choose to include in their personal care routines.”
Rodan + Fields’ expanded partnership with TerraCycle reinforces the company’s larger sustainability commitments announced this year in their inaugural ESG Report. Rodan + Fields takes its responsibility to support its community and protect the planet seriously and continues to work to advance the sustainability of its products and supply chain.
The Rodan + Fields Recycling Program is open to all Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants, and customers throughout Canada, Australia and the United States. For more information on TerraCycle’s recycling programs, visit www.terracycle.ca.

The brand is a result of the Doctors’ belief that healthy skin empowers people to feel confident. Born in the digital era and designed to directly reach consumers where they live and shop via mobile and social networks, Rodan + Fields disrupted the skincare industry with its regimen-based Multi-Med Therapy approach to skincare and powerful Independent Consultant community.About TerraCycle
