1. What does Human Nature do with collected plastic bottles?

In partnership with Plastic Flamingo (PLAF), Human Nature bottles are sorted, processed, and transformed into eco-lumber to be used as construction material for shelters, street furniture, and other architectural solutions.

2. How does the recycling program work?

Approach our store staff and hand over your empty, dry and clean used Human Nature bottles for inspection. Once they’re good to go, they will be delivered to PLAF for recycling.
