How it works

Participating is simple and free.

What you can recycle

NOW® food and supplement pouches and “sticks”, toothpaste tubes, and personal care tubes and 4-ounce spray bottles

Best practices for recycling

We encourage you to ship when your box is full to ensure efficiency and reduce the environmental impacts of transportation for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it in to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the plastic packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.

Rewards

Shipments in this program must be at least 1 pound to earn points, and 100 points per pound will be awarded.

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each piece of NOW® plastic packaging you send in will earn you about 2 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.02 pounds.
