Three Ways to Earn Extra Rewards
Tell Your Friends: The TerraCycle Friends promotion rewards you with bonus points for spreading the word about TerraCycle and Eliminating the Idea of Waste. Each friend that you encourage to start recycling drink pouches can earn you up to 500 bonus points.
Send Your First Shipment: The First Shipment Bonus promotion will reward you for your first-ever shipment through this Brigade. Your first shipment, of any size, received between now and the end of April will earn you 200 bonus points.
Be a Lucky Winner: Through the Drink Pouch Brigade Giveaway you have the chance to be rewarded for your eco-conscious shipping decisions. The larger (and consequently more eco-friendly) your shipment, the more entries you will earn into a monthly sweepstakes.
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.
