How does the Zero Waste Box by TerraCycle work?
We fill up the Zero Waste Box with all of the used and empty Re:fills we’ve received from our customers. We then ship the box to TerraCycle where the Re:fills are sorted and processed into raw materials so that they can be reused and transformed into something new, instead of being sent to landfill.
Do I have to pay for my return?
Yes - as a thank you we will send you $10 credit per Re:fill to spend online once we receive your return. We recommend sending via tracked delivery as we cannot credit you for a missing package.
Can I drop off my Re:fill to you?
Yes - at the return address provided. If possible, please try to let us know when you’ll be dropping by. Our studio hours operate between 9-5pm.
How can I ensure I receive my credit?
- Include your name and email address in the return.
- Only return 1L Re:fill pouches.
- Pay the correct postage.
When will I receive my credit?
Within two weeks of us receiving your return.
Can I return any other packaging?
For now we are accepting 1L Re:fill pouches only. Please do no return any of our bottles or other packaging. As our business grows we will work towards reducing our environmental impact further and hope to offer all package returns in the near future.

Some of our scents are created purely from essential oils while others combine EO’s with plant derived natural fragrance. Two scents (Boronia and Wild Rosella) are a blend of EO’s and synthetic fragrance. This allows our range to have a wide scent story while offering customers a choice in how their product is fragranced.

Each pouch reduces plastic by 80% when used to refill two of our 500ml bottles. Similar to our bottles, the refill pouches are only recyclable with specialist recycling services such as TerraCycle.
Is any of the Leif packaging recyclable or compostable?
We ship orders with reusable and recyclable cardboard boxes and paper packaging for cushioning. Some orders may have biofill peanuts which are made from corn starch and are fully compostable. Gift sets, magnums and travel kits come with a cotton drawstring bag which can be reused indefinitely. Our small gift boxes are not currently recyclable due to their celloglaze coating. We are always looking for ways to improve on our packaging sustainability. Please email us if you are interested in recycling with TerraCycle.
We ship Australia-wide with Australia Post (and TNT for pedestals). You can select from Standard or Express Post at checkout. Orders that contain hand sanitiser products can only ship with standard shipping due to aviation safety guidelines.
