Eco-conscious fashionistas across the country can turn used accessories and footwear into money for charity! These latest free recycling programs are perfect for any one trying to clean out her home or closets.
Don't Throw Away Flip Flops or Shoes
There’s no longer a reason to throw old flip flops in the garbage now that they can be recycled! Thanks to Old Navy, consumers can do the right thing for the environment and send their old flip flops to TerraCycle free of charge through the Flip Flop Brigade. For every 25 pairs sent in, consumers will receive exclusive Old Navy coupons to share with friends. TerraCycle and Old Navy had a month-long flip flop collection program in 2011 and the year-round collection program was instituted by popular request. TerraCycle also offers a Paired Shoe Brigade for people to send in pairs of shoes that will be donated to third world countries.
Recycle Beauty Packaging: Any Brand, Any Kind
Thanks to Garnier, men and women now have a solution when they want to get rid of an empty or old beauty product. Instead of throwing away any brand of shampoo bottles, lotion tubes, eye shadow cases or lipstick tubes, among many other items, they can be sent to TerraCycle through the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade. Two points are awarded for each item sent in and the points can be used for charity gifts or converted to cash and donated to a favorite charity or school.
TerraCycle is the world's leader in the collection of hard-to-recycle products and packaging. People who are interested in signing up for these or any other TerraCycle programs should visit www.terracycle.com.
