Selfridges bans all single-use beauty wipes

As part of Project Ocean (our long-term campaign to protect our oceans from over-fishing and plastic pollution), we have banned all single-use, plastic-based beauty wipes from sale and use in our Beauty Halls

As of today, Tuesday 26 November, we have replaced all single-use wipes with recyclable or re-usable alternatives. Our latest commitment is part of our ever-evolving plan to change the way we shop and to offer our customers more sustainable options.

Daniella Vega, Director of Sustainability at Selfridges, said: “Single-use beauty wipes have been a staple of many beauty drawers, but they are incredibly harmful to the environment. During a recent Selfridges team beach clean, we saw first-hand the impact they have on our waterways and we were even more motivated to remove them from our stores. We’re proud to have made this commitment and to continue to build on our legacy of sustainability leadership.”
