Thanks to a great new partnership with TerraCycle, you can now turn everyday items that you would normally throw in the trash into dollars to build schools in Sudan!
How it works?
We collect recyclable items for TerraCycle, they pay for us to mail them in, and they give the school building project $0.02 per item we send them. TerraCycle then turns those recyclable items into new products (sold at retailers nationwide).
What can we collect?
The things we can collect for recycling are: any brand or size
Drink Pouches (not boxes)
Plastic Wrappers from Paper Products – paper towels, toilet paper, etc.
Diaper packaging – plastic wrappers from diapers and wipes with brand (not clear plastic)
Cheese Packaging – outer packing from cheese, cheese tubs
Dropps Landry Detergent Pouches (only Dropps brand)
Kashi Packaging – all packing from Kashi products and any brand plastic cereal bag liners
Plastic #6 Drinking Cups
Personal Care and Beauty – any personal care or beauty product packaging
Tortilla and Tostada Bags
