This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of shampoo refill pouches sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 2 kilograms.
1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points
3.5 kilograms = 350 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 as financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
