Once collected, the personal care product packaging is separated by polymer type and cleaned (if necessary). The material is then extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators and private collectors as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the total weight of the shipment. 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.
Here is the reward this programme offers:
200 grams of personal care product packaging = 0 TerraCycle® points
500 grams of personal care product packaging = 50 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of personal care product packaging = 100 TerraCycle® points
Please be aware, the weight of the cardboard box is not taken into account. TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators and private collectors to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
We believe in taking care of the world around us so want to close the loop on our packaging and with your help, ensure it doesn’t end up in landfills or oceans. That’s why we’ve partnered with award-winning company TerraCycle® to provide a free and simple solution to ensure recycling Burt’s Bees products is easy.
