The only thing that can improve a bowl of hot cereal is being able to recycle its packaging! Better Oats® and I Love Oats™ has taken their commitment to reducing packaging waste one step further. Thanks to their support, hot cereal pouches can now be recycled through the Hot Cereal Brigade, sponsored by their parent company MOM Brands®.
For each approved hot cereal pouch received, your collection location will be awarded two TerraCycle points which 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!
Participation in this TerraCycle Brigade is totally free! There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by our sponsors. Once you have joined the Hot Cereal Brigade simply follow the steps below:
- Collect enough hot cereal pouches to fill a box or bag. Remember, the waste does not need to be cleaned, 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."
- Ship the box to TerraCycle by affixing the pre-paid postage label and dropping it off at a UPS location.
For more detailed information please visit the Hot Cereal Brigade FAQ.
