TRENTON, N.J., Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, Americans throw away 25% more trash than any other time of year ? amounting to nearly 25 million tons of excess waste each year. This holiday season, international recycling leader TerraCycle is providing consumers the option to buy better with the launch of the TerraCycle® Made collection, a small selection of useful products created from recycled and recyclable materials all sourced from various TerraCycle recycling programs.
Specializes in recycling the unrecyclable, from cosmetics empties, to cigarette butts, to products and packaging from well-known household brands, TerraCycle has reimagined the waste collected in its over 300 recycling programs by the TerraCycle community into new, everyday items consumers can feel good about purchasing.
The TerraCycle® Made collection includes:
"Making products responsibly and sustainably means reevaluating the way we think about waste," says Tom Szaky, CEO and founder of TerraCycle. "At TerraCycle, we believe strongly in reusing, repairing, and recycling what we can and doing our best to buy less whenever possible. The TerraCycle® Made collection is the result of many decisions and actions at every step along the way, reaffirming our mission of Eliminating the Idea of Waste."
Every purchase from the TerraCycle® Made collection reduces the reliance on virgin materials extracted from the planet while creating long-lasting, essential products, to stand up to years of use in the home. By making new items from the materials collected by the TerraCycle community, this valuable resource never goes to waste.
The TerraCycle® Made collection has a free, built-in recycling program to make sure each purchase will never end up in the trash. The recycled-content products are made to last but at the end of their useful life, they can be sent back and recycled again through TerraCycle.
