How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure the products and packaging are completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the Brita® products and packaging are separated by composition and shredded to make new recycled products. The carbon filters are separated for use in polymers. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


TerraCycle Points

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.

By drinking filtered water, we can reduce the amount of plastic bottles that ends up in landfills and oceans. In fact, every Brita® filter used means 300 standard 16.9 oz plastic bottles saved. And since that's not enough, Brita® has teamed up with TerraCycle to recycle their already eco-friendly products and packaging.

Sign up for their newsletter to get Brita® news and product information, and sign up for a filter reminder to make it easy to keep your filters fresh and water trasting great.
