As part of the #KeepOnRecycling global social media contest, every Monday our TerraCycle® Judging Team choose the three (3) most creative posts from around the world demonstrating how they’re collecting TerraCycle® waste at home. Each one of our lucky winners will receive £80 worth of TerraCycle® points that they can redeem as donations to charities of their choice!
1. Joy Carter on Facebook – United Kingdom
Joy shared a great short video of her innovative solution for sorting and storing multiple types of TerraCycle® waste in one place. Joy used different sized boxes, with each box storing a particular type of waste, and stacked them on top of each other. She then placed a brick on top to weigh down and compact the waste – saving even more space! Lastly, she kept the waste in a carrier bag so it is easily transportable and ready to go (minus the brick!).
This community page in France shared a really informative video documenting how this collector has a small collection box for each type of waste throughout their home. In the video description they explain that it has become an important part of their routine to the point it is practically a reflex! Amazing to see their organisation and dedication!
3. Pitadas +Verdes on Instagram – Brazil
In Brazil you can recycle old pencils thanks to a partnership with Faber-Castell®! This entry is a great demonstration of how you can upcycle pencils to create lovely decorations while you’re collecting at home. We hope this gives you some creative ideas to try!
You could be next!
