TerraCycle is challenging our Brigade participants to come together to make a significant impact on a specific charity. Each month, TerraCycle will feature one of the Charity Partners in our points program. Not only are you helping TerraCycle eliminate the idea of waste, but you are also making a positive change in the world!
During the month of March, TerraCycle participants redeemed enough points to Covenant House, and because of your hard work, we have reached our goal and TerraCycle is excited to provide a year’s worth of school supplies to 15 more homeless young adults.
In celebration of Earth Month, TerraCycle has partnered with Carbonfund.org to reduce the amount of carbon in the Earth’s atmosphere.
April Challenge: Reduce 5,000 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere
If Brigade locations redeem their TerraCycle points to reduce a total of 5,000 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere, TerraCycle will in turn reduce 5 tons of carbon from the atmosphere through Carbonfund.org.

CarbonFund achieves significant carbon reductions by supporting projects that bring renewable energy to villages in Gujurat, India; convert farm waste into renewable energy in the northeastern U.S.; and protect the carbon-storage capacity of forests in the southern U.S. CarbonFund is currently working to conserve millions of acres of tropical forest in Brazil and Indonesia.
