Luxury niche perfumer Laurice Rahme will open her Bond No. 9 New York boutique and Saks Fifth Avenue doors to anyone wishing to recycle their empty perfume bottles. Well known by fragrance connoisseurs for her exquisitely crafted collection of neighborhood scents, Ms. Rahme will put her efforts toward recycling the glass that houses them—as well as any of her competitors’ bottles.
Consumers are urged to bring empty perfume bottles to Bond No. 9 or Saks Fifth Avenue stores. And by way of an eco-friendly thank-you, Bond No. 9 will give out refillable pocket sprays free with any purchase.
“As I become more aware of the issues facing our environment, I feel compelled on a personal and business level to participate in the green movement – and assume a leadership role. When I heard what Mayor Bloomberg is doing for the city with recycling, I knew that I could help, too,” said Ms. Rahme. More info: www.bondno9.com.
