Estée Lauder aims to solve the plastics problem—in space

Estée Lauder is partnering with The International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory to fund research that aims to tackle the plastic problem on Earth. This will be conducted by researching plastic-free alternative materials in space.

Global president of Estée Lauder Stéphane de La Faverie, says “Estée Lauder is committed to fostering pioneering ideas in the areas of science and sustainability. Our hope is this challenge will give researchers the opportunity to submit ground-breaking concepts that may one day in the near future improve Earth’s environment.

This marks the first time a beauty brand has partnered with an ISS National Lab to advance sustainable research for plastics alternatives while leveraging a research and development opportunity.

Estée Lauder has implemented strong initiatives to drive the reduction of virgin and non-recyclable plastics. By 2025, the brand is committed to having 75-100% of its packaging be reusable, recyclable, refillable and recyclable.
