This programme offers 100 TerraCycle points for each kilogram of Babybel packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 500 grams.
300 grams = 0 TerraCycle points
500 grams = 50 TerraCycle points
3 kilograms = 300 TerraCycle points
Please note that TerraCycle points are credited to the accounts of programme members as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle point is worth 1 penny.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle website.
