Recycle with Sabon & Save!

As Sabon continues its efforts to be environmentally conscious in all parts of our business, we’re proud to introduce a new program that’ll help you reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your favorite Sabon products.

When you bring in an empty Sabon bottle, jar, or other container that was once filled with our all-natural products, you’ll receive 10% of the same product that was in the Sabon container you returned.

For example, return an empty vanilla body scrub jar for recycling and you’ll receive 10% off a new body scrub jar of the same size. The discount is valid on Sabon full line of products. It doesn't matter what you’re out of, we’ll accept the empty container and give you 10% off a replacement product.

Here’s even better news: This discount is valid for as many Sabon containers you want to return each visit – you’ll receive 10% off the same item for each bottle brought in. Bring in 10 empty containers, save 10% on 10 new Sabon products. That’s like scoring a full-size product absolutely free!

We’re very excited for this new policy – yep, it’s a policy, not just a promotion – because we’re always thinking of ways to enhance our eco-friendly efforts and provide our customers with special savings.

Some other ways we honor our commitment to this beautiful planet we live on include:

  • Sourcing our cardboard and glass from recycled materials from Israel.
  • Recycling cardboard and glass in all our stores. The New York Sanitation Department picks up our recyclables twice a week.
  • Shipping products from our headquarters in Israel to New York City strictly by sea. Sabon never sends shipments via air.

And we’re always looking for additional ways to cut back on waste and make this world a better place. If you have any ideas on how we can further our green efforts, leave a comment below or e-mail us directly at We read every message we receive so we can be the best Sabon we can be for our customers.


We look forward to seeing you in a Sabon Boutique soon. Don’t forget to bring in your empty jar, bottle, or other container so you can receive 10% off a replacement product today.

Will this policy be available to your customers on the west coast ? Can I send my jars/ bottles in

Hi Miranda, 

Unfortunately, this offer is only available in our stores. The reason being, sending back the bottles from the West coast would somewhat defeat the purpose of our green efforts. the shipping of empty bottles across far distances causes more pollution (through transportation) than we intend to save with our recycling efforts. We hope to meet you in the West coast soon. Thank you for your patience! 

Love Sabon

Bummer! I was about to ask this question too. I'm in upstate New York and wondered if I could send in empty bottles and jars. The distance isn't as far as the West Coast.

How long does this promotion last? Any cutoff date?

I live in Arizona i have my container for the green valley diffuser when will you offer refills for that oil? when i called your store in schaumburg i was told there was no refill i would have to purchase the entire kit again. Very dissapointing.

Hi Elaine,

Bring all the bottles you have! Remember, one empty diffuser bottle will get you 10% Off a new Aroma Diffuser. Two empty Bottles wil get you 10% Off a second new Aroma Diffuser. We hope to see you soon!


Nora -- We apologise for your disapointment. The refills are something we recently stopped carrying, as it was also distributed in a glass container, and the price was very close to the cost of purchasing a new Aroma. 

We are working our tactics on being more environmentally friendly all the time. We are welcome and happy to hear your suggestions. Thank you for taking the time to comment.


Warmest regards,

I love, love, love this idea!  However, why can't the 10% apply to any glass recyclable product? The customer going to the extra length to bring the bottle to the store but MUST buy the same product doesn't make sense to me. The glass is still being recycled in the end... 

Also, when making a purchase online can you go to the store to get discount adjustment the 10% off the purchased bottles showing the receipt?

Thank you for your questions!

The concept we came up with states that the recycled jar/bottle must be the same product as the new one being discounted. One reason being that eventually we hope to refill the bottles for our customers on site! Please don't forget that the choice of fragrance never has to be the same, which leaves you room to experience variety!

The recycling promotion applies to the stores only. We hold many promotions online that are not applicable in the stores. This one specifically being exclusive to the stores.

Hope this helps!

I love this idea! I'm happy that Sabon is becoming more environmentally conscious. 

Does this apply to serum bottles?

Many thanks,

Hi Sharon!

Sabon is very mindful and aware of our Environment and the importance of making every effort to increase that awareness. We constantly strive to improve on a daily basis. :)

That being said, we are happy that you are happy!

The answer to your question is YES, this also applies to serum bottles!
