Recycle snack bags through this program.
TerraCycle® has partnered with Sensible Portions® brand and the rest of the Hain snacking family to create a free recycling program for snack bags, as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Important update to the shipment size requirement!
Starting May 1, 2017, the new shipment size requirement to earn TerraCycle points is 20 lbs. This means you must ship over 20 lbs to earn TerraCycle points in this program. By encouraging larger shipments through this program, we can help reduce fuel costs and create an even smaller environmental footprint. It's just one more way we can join together to make this program an even bigger win for the environment.
While you wait for more slots to become available in this program, we encourage you to look at our Snack Wrapper Zero Waste Box.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Family-size snack bags, individual snack bags, and multipack snack bags
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover chips). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Once collected, the snack bags are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
The rewards for this program follow a tiered structure. The larger your shipment, the more points you can earn!
