How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle in this program

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover granola). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the wrappers and bags are cleaned and melted into plastic pellets that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.

It's important to Bear Naked to make sure we leave the world just as we've discovered it. That's why they've teamed up with us to recycle Bear Naked packaging into things like park benches, picnic tables, and backpacks.
