TerraCycle’s recycling campaigns are so easy to participate in that nearly any company with any sense (and the opportunity) can get on board and get some good green PR for doing so.
While I wouldn’t give most of the cheese companies below much green credit, it is at least good that they joined TerraCycle’s new Cheese Packaging Brigade™, and big props to TerraCycle for its success in getting these huge companies to participate in such a program.
Here’s more on the new Cheese Packaging Brigade™ from TerraCycle:
Kraft® Cheese has partnered with eco-innovator TerraCycle® to help provide a second life for cheese packaging materials by converting waste materials into fun and unique products sold at major retailers!
Every time you buy a Kraft product you and your organization can help divert the packaging from our landfills by sending it to TerraCycle. For each approved item received, 2¢ will be paid to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.
The program is currently sponsored by Kraft Singles, Kraft String Cheese, Polly-O String Cheese, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Kraft Natural Cheese, Cracker Barrel Cheese, Velveeta, Kraft Grated Parmesan, Athenos, Breakstone’s, Knudsen Cheese, and all other delicious Kraft Cheese products….
TerraCycle also recently launched the Tortilla and Tostada Bag Brigade with Mission Foods, its first Mexican food partner. “Two cents per bag collected will be paid to Share our Strength, Mission’s charity partner, or to the charity of the collector’s choice,” Stacey Cusack of TerraCycle wrote in an email to me.
Join these brigades or others like them over on TerraCycle now.
