All waste collected as part of The Marigold® Gloves Recycling Programme is shipped to the TerraCycle® warehouse, where it is separated by polymer type and cleaned (if necessary). The material is then extruded into plastic pellets, creating new recycled products from your Marigold® durable and disposable household gloves and the plastic packaging.

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Marigold® durable and disposable household gloves and their plastic packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 1 kilogram.
0.5 kilograms of Marigold® household gloves = 0 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of Marigold® household gloves = 100 TerraCycle® points
3 kilograms of Marigold®household gloves = 300 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators only 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.
