If you make homemade green cleaners, a major benefit is not having all those leftover cleaning containers to recycle or toss. Homemade cleaners mean you get to reuse refillable containers over and over.
Not everyone wants to make homemade cleaners though, but that’s fine, so long as you purchase safe green cleaners. However, there is a downside – excess packaging. It can be confusing to recycle cleaning containers, especially when you’re dealing with packaging that comes with trigger sprays or weird plastic looking labels.
Luckily, Method and upcycler TerraCycle have just made it eaiser than ever to not only recycle, but upcycle cleaning packages with their “Cleaner Packaging Brigade.” This new program allows you to recycle pumps, triggers, refill pouches and almost any other cleaning product packaging you can think of.
4 Easy Steps to Recycling Bliss
- Collect empty cleaning packaging.
- Place the collected packaging into a reuse shipping box or bag.
- Download a FREE pre-paid shipping label from TerraCycle and affix it to your shipment.
- Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at a UPS location.
You can send in pumps, triggers, pouches, and flexible cleaner product packaging from any brand, not just Method. All packaging sent to TerraCycle will be turned into trash cans, coolers and other home goods, plus for each piece of packaging collected and returned, you earn points toward charity gifts and donations.
