TerraCycle® commits to carbon neutral parcel delivery

On top of collecting and recycling waste that would otherwise be destined for landfills or incineration, we have made a commitment that all parcels containing waste that are sent to us through UPS in the UK are carbon neutral.

This means that whenever a parcel is sent, the carbon emissions released during its transport will be offset. By offsetting the emissions, we neutralize the negative impact it has on the environment. 

How do we neutralize our carbon emissions?

Offsetting our carbon emissions is possible through our partnership with UPS, the parcel delivery service you use to send your waste for recycling. With their help, we are investing in projects that reduce carbon emissions around the world. For example, we are supporting reforestation initiatives whereby trees are planted to absorb carbon dioxide emissions. This way, the carbon emissions are balanced out.

Why are we making this commitment?

Our mission is to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. Like many of our collectors, we want to do what we can to help our planet. While we work towards achieving our mission, we also want to minimize our carbon footprint as much as possible.

What does our commitment mean for you?

Nothing changes in the way you make use of our free recycling programmes or Zero Waste Boxes™. When you send your parcels, you can be rest assured that the emissions from the transport will be offset at no extra cost to you.
