While Malt-O-Meal®, Spooners®, Three Sisters®, Bear River Valley®, and Sally's® brand cereals create 75% less packaging watse than comparably sized cereal boxes, they want to take their commitment to creating less packaging waste one step further by partnering with TerraCycle®. This partnership has created the MOM Brands Cereal Bag Brigade®, a free recycling program for cereal bags, as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Participating is completely free and very easy. There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by our brand partner. After joining the MOM Brands Cereal Bag Brigade, simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us:
- Join the program by clicking on the black button at the top of the sidebar.
- Collect cereal bags and fill up a box or bag. Your shipment may be any size to earn TerraCycle points.
- Download a free shipping label from your TerraCycle account. Click "Get Shipping Label" under the "Send Your Waste" option in the navigation bar at the top of this page.
- Ship the box to TerraCycle by affixing the free shipping label and dropping it off at a UPS location.
