It’s the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and we’ve been preparing for it all month long! Celebrate with us and our global community of collectors at home. The festivities may look a bit different in 2020, but there are so many ways you can take action and make yourself heard today, and every day, in support of the planet.

Empower yourself and the next generation of leaders with these easy and rewarding activities from TerraCycle:

Upcycling DIY projects from our team of Design Junkies

No matter your age, there are always opportunities to learn something new, and getting crafty with our upcycling Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects is a great way to teach children and grown-ups about how items we are accustomed to throwing away can serve another use.

Also known as “creative reuse,” upcycling is a visual, artful way to see the possibilities in products and packaging typically headed for landfills.  Here are some easy upcycling projects you can do at home.

Keep on recycling through our National Recycling Programs

Prevent litter from entering the environment and raise funds for your favorite schools and charities through our National Recycling Programs! Just save up the snack wrappers, used toothbrushes, and beauty empties you interact with every day to ship to us for recycling return labels you can download for free when your boxes are full.


These easy-to-use programs have a huge impact by putting material normally headed for landfills to good use. We can help; our tips and tricks for recycling at home include sorting advice and fun storage ideas and we launch new programs every month!

Recycle everything with Zero Waste Box™

Now’s a great time to spring clean and look through rooms for items that no longer serve you. For the many types of products and packaging we don’t currently have a free recycling program for, our comprehensive line of Zero Waste Boxes are an all-in-one way to keep these valuable items out of landfills.
