Introduction

Ella's Kitchen is one of 2 brands partnering with TerraCycle® as part of The Kids Food Pouch Recycling Programme. This page is for all members of the programme who will send all brands of kids' food pouches they've collected to TerraCycle®.

If you are not currently registered on the programme, then please find your nearest public drop-off location to drop off your all brands of baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets using the interactive map displayed on The Kids Food Pouch Recycling Programme page.

If you’re currently a private member and would like to become a public drop-off location administrator, please take a look at the information further down the page under ‘Set up your own public drop-off location’.

How it works

When you are ready to send a parcel, please follow these steps:

  1. Download a free UPS label from your account.
  2. Print your label out.
  3. Use a sturdy cardboard box that is no bigger than 60 x 60 x 50cm and a maximum weight of 20kg. 
  4. Attach your label securely to your parcel, and ensure it is easy to read. 
  5. ​Arrange a free pick-up for your parcel via UPS by either booking online, calling 03457 877 877 or dropping off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point.

For more information on how to prepare and send your parcel, check out our step-by-step video guide here. Please note, you can pack all brands of baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets together in your parcel without having to sort or separate the waste.

Set up your own public drop-off location

If you’re an existing private member of the programme and there are no public drop-off locations within a 5-mile radius, why not set up your own public drop-off location so you can have an even bigger impact? This way you’ll collect even more waste and earn more TerraCycle® points, resulting in bigger donations for your chosen charities and schools! It also encourages people from your community to get more involved and help the planet. Click here to fill out the online form to apply today.

Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.

Best practices for collecting

Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. food residue) and place all baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets in a cardboard box. Tape the box closed securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.

What happens to this waste

Once collected, your empty baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets are separated by polymer type and cleaned (if necessary). The material is then extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.

Rewards

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points per kilogram of baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 8 kilograms.

For example:

1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
8 kilograms = 800 TerraCycle® points
12 kilograms = 1,200 TerraCycle® points

Please note that 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 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.
