Our partnership with TerraCycle®
TerraCycle’s mission is to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. TerraCycle® accepts items that are typically hard to recycle. We created this partnership to provide an easy and free way for you to recycle old product containers.
How TerraCycle® works
Participating in this program is easy and FREE! Select which product packaging type you have to get started.
When your product runs out, collect your empty bottles, tubes, pumps, boxes, and tubs in a sturdy box suitable for shipping.
When your box is full, use your TerraCycle account to print the FREE shipping label and ship via UPS.
TerraCycle will recycle your old containers and use them to make picnic tables, park benches, and more.
