Every year millions of non-recyclable bags and wrappers end up in landfills. TerraCycle® is committed to finding a new life for this waste by recycling Bear Naked® bags and wrappers into new unique products.
Thanks to the generous support of Bear Naked®, for each approved Bear Naked package received, your collection location will be awarded two TerraCycle points. These TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, or for a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Please click here to learn more about the TerraCycle Points Program!
Participating in a TerraCycle Brigade is totally free! There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by the program. Once you have joined the Bear Naked Brigade®, simply follow the steps below to receive your TerraCycle points:
- Collect enough approved Bear Naked waste products to fill up a box or bag (approved waste is listed below). Remember, the waste does not need to be cleaned or stacked, and always try to reuse a shipping box or bag!
- Download a free shipping label from terracycle.com. To acquire a pre-paid label, simply access your TerraCycle account online, and click “SHIP US YOUR WASTE.” You can print them out yourself or request that TerraCycle send the label.
- Ship the box to TerraCycle by affixing the pre-paid postage label and dropping it off at a UPS location.
