Recycle all personal care packaging through this program.
Get closer to nature when you recycle! TerraCycle® and Tom’s of Maine have partnered to create a national recycling program for all personal care packaging.
Participating is simple and free.
All personal care mouthwash bottles and caps, toothbrushes, deodorant containers and caps, soap packaging, floss containers, and toothpaste tubes and caps.
We encourage you to ship when your box is full of personal care packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible (i.e. toothpaste). UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.
Once collected, the personal care packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remoulded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
Shipments in the Tom’s of Maine Natural Care Recycling Program must be at least 2 pounds to earn TerraCycle points. For all qualifying shipments, 100 points per pound will be awarded.
Awarded TerraCycle points can be allocated toward a variety of charitable gifts or redeemed as a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each piece of personal care packaging sent in will earn approximately 4.3 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of 19.5 grams.
