Important Update to the Lunch Kit Brigade

Over the past year, the Lunch Kit Brigade has seen significant success in preventing lunch kit packaging from going to landfill. Now it’s time to decrease our environmental impact even further by encouraging you to send in even larger shipments.

Starting October 1, the new shipment size requirement to earn TerraCycle points is 15 lbs. Keep in mind that you may continue to send in smaller shipments, but only the largest, most eco-friendly shipments will earn the TerraCycle point donation.

To get you excited about having an even better impact on the environment, we’re rewarding the first 45 users who send in a shipment over the new shipment size requirement. Stay tuned on October 1.

TerraCycle® and Lunchables® Lunch Combinations have partnered to create the Lunch Kit Brigade®, a free recycling program for lunch kit packaging and a fundraising opportunity for participants.


How It Works

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 Lunch Kit Brigade, simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us:

  1. Join the program by clicking on the black button at the top of the sidebar.
  2. Collect lunch kit packaging and fill up a box or bag. To earn TerraCycle points, remember that your shipments must weigh over 4 lbs (about 115 pieces) to receive the TerraCycle point donation.
  3. 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.
  4. Ship the box to TerraCycle by affixing the free shipping label and dropping it off at a UPS location.

Earning TerraCycle Points

TerraCycle points are an added incentive to our recycling programs. Please read the information below about earning TerraCycle points for this specific Brigade program.

  • Your shipment must weigh over 4 lbs (or approximately 115 pieces).
  • You will be awarded two TerraCycle points for each unit of waste.
  • Shipments may weigh less than 4 lbs, you simply will not earn TerraCycle points.
