When it comes to recycling, local councils in the UK often don’t do nearly enough. Chances are, all those unclassifiable items you’re not sure which bin to throw in aren’t getting recycled by your council.
That’s where TerraCycle comes in, operating in 21 countries around the world they partner with brands to create free recycling schemes for specific items — think toothbrushes & toothpaste tubes, contact lenses and packets, crisp and snack packets, baby food pouches…
Not only does participating in TerraCycle help the planet, but when you drop off waste at a collection point, Sea the Change can claim TerraCycle points which they can use their points to fund more eco projects!
So far TerraCycle's free recycling programmes have raised a total of £986,864 for good causes — and saved over 84 MILLION PIECES of waste from landfill or incineration in the UK.
