Mr. Men and Little Miss


We know that you don’t want to buy a new plastic bottle each time you run out of your Carex hand wash. That’s why we’ve created new eco-friendly refills. With our new refill pouches, you can top up your bottles, saving up to 85% less plastic (1L pouch vs 4 250ml bottles).


Lots of people don’t realise that our pumps are reusable too! Sometimes, hand wash pumps can stop working efficiently, leaving us without clean hands. With Carex you can use your pump over 10,000 times – that’s about a whole year’s worth of usage! Thanks to your shared commitment to reuse and refilling, we’ve saved over 5 million pumps (and we’re still counting).


We’re actively working to reduce our plastic handprint. So far, our bottles are 100% recyclable and made from 30% recycled plastic. Hand wash pumps and refill pouches from any brand cannot currently be recycled through traditional UK council systems, which is why we have partnered with TerraCycle® to provide a simple way to recycle them for the first time. 

Helping the environment

Every year thousands of hand wash pumps and refill pouches end up in landfill across the UK. We are working with TerraCycle® to end this enormous loss of resources. 

The Carex Recycling Programme allows you to recycle our hand wash pumps and refill pouches and those of Imperial Leather and Bayley’s of Bond Street.

Not only are we helping the environment, but the waste you recycle also helps to raise money for schools and charities. 



There are 2 ways to participate in the Carex Recycling Programme:

1. Drop off your Carex hand wash pumps and refill pouches at your nearest drop off location

2. Set up your own drop-off location

100 TerraCycle® points will be awarded for each kilogram sent. One TerraCycle® point is worth £0.01
