Beginning March 1, instead of earning TerraCycle points, Clif Bar will donate $0.01 per wrapper to American Forests American ReLeaf Program for all qualifying shipments over 5 lbs. Each wrapper collected will help support tree planting and forest management in critical ecosystems like the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Northern Rockies that have been impacted by wildfire and drought.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Foil-lined energy bar wrappers; foil-lined granola bar wrappers; foil-lined meal replacement bar wrappers; foil-lined protein bar wrappers; foil-lined diet bar wrappers; Clif Bar & Co. wrappers from Clif Bars, Luna Bars, MOJO, Builders, Crunch, Clif Kid Z-Bar, Kits Organic, Clif Kid Z-Fruit, Shot Bloks, Shot Gels, and Shot Drinks; pouches from Clif Organic Energy Food

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. large crumbs). 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 pouches 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

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.
