Late July Snacks has expanded their partnership with international recycling company TerraCycle to offer consumers a free, easy way to recycle packaging from their entire product line of snacks.
“Based on the huge success of the recycling envelope program we offered through TerraCycle, we’re thrilled to expand into a free recycling program that will give consumers nationwide the opportunity to recycle even more Late July snack packaging,” said Theresa Miller, director, Late July. “Since our inception in 2003, our mission has been to provide consumers with organic, non-GMO snacks that the whole family will love. Through our new partnership with TerraCycle, we can add national recyclability to our promise.”
Through the Late July Recycling Program, consumers can send in their empty snack packaging to be recycled for free. Participation is easy: sign up on the TerraCycle program page and mail in the packaging using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Additionally, for every two pounds of waste shipped to TerraCycle, collectors can earn $1 to donate to a non-profit, school or charitable organization of their choice.
“Thanks to companies like Late July, consumers can enjoy their favorite snacks while being rewarded for doing the right thing,” said TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky. “Through the expansion of the program, consumers have an opportunity to divert even more packaging from landfills, as well as provide material for the manufacture of new products.”
The Late July Recycling Program is open to any interested individual, school, office, or community organization. For more information on TerraCycle’s recycling program, visit www.terracycle.com.
