Important update to the Drink Pouch Brigade
On January 1, 2016, the Drink Pouch Brigade will be undergoing several changes. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. Please find a brief overview of the changes that will go into effect listed below:
- New Programs: This program will split into two independent programs. One will be sponsored by Honest Kids and the other Capri Sun.
- New Incentive Structure: Only shipments over 10 lbs will earn 1 point per pouch in both programs.
All existing participants may continue shipping drink pouches through this program through January 1, 2016. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact TerraCycle Customer Support.
TerraCycle®, Capri Sun®, and Honest Kids® have partnered to create the Drink Pouch Brigade®, a free recycling program for drink pouches and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
