Recycling in partnership with Ella’s Kitchen®
TerraCycle® and Ella's Kitchen® have partnered to create EllaCycle, a free recycling programme for any brand of baby food pouches and any brand of baby food pouch caps, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Please notice there is a minimum shipment requirement of 5 kg and above (approx 550 used Ella's Kitchen® Pouches).
Please note every parcel of baby food pouches and snack wrappers we receive will have to weigh a minimum of 7 kg to receive TerraCycle® points from September 2nd 2019 onwards. This change will help us to recycle even more baby food pouches and snack wrappers!
There are 3 different ways to become an EllaCycler:
Find your nearest public drop-off location on the interactive map above and drop off your baby food pouches and snack wrappers – all brands are accepted.
To learn more about public drop-off locations, please click here.
If there are no public drop-off locations near you, you can set up your own in a convenient location where you have the authorisation to do so. Simply follow the steps below:
To request your EllaCycle collection box, tick the box in the form. Once the public drop-off point has been set up, the location will appear on the map.
If there is no public drop-off location already in place where you live, or that you are not able to set up your own, then you have the option to sign up as a private collector by clicking on “join programme for free" on this page.
Once you are a member of the programme (either by setting up a public drop-off location or collecting privately) and when you are ready to send a shipment, please follow these steps:
Programme accepted waste: Any brand of baby food pouches and any brand of baby food pouch caps.
Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all baby food pouches and snack wrappers in a box, including the lids. Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.
Once collected, the baby food pouches and snack wrappers are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle® points can be redeemed for a payment of €0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points programme, click here, click here.
