Every Monday, our global teams select the three (3) most creative posts from around the world as winners of $100 in TerraCycle® points through the #KeepOnRecycling global social media contest!

Here are the week’s winners:

1. Solene Ferreira (@SFDeurope) on Twitter – United Kingdom

UK 5.18

As part of her Eco School Week, Solene’s daughter Milaya shows us how she keeps her TerraCycle items sorted in different containers for easy, clean shipping. The video even includes a lovely blooper reel at the end!

2. Association Activites Loisirs (Leisure Activities Association) on Facebook – France

FR 5.18
Translation: “At home, here is our tip to collect used writing instruments: create a collection box from old paper packaging. Nothing’s lost, everything changes. While we wait to send them to TerraCycle.”

A simple and effective trick for recycling the non-recyclable is to download and print the promotional poster that comes with each program, and decorating the collection box!

On this winning collection box it says, “Stop! Your pen is valuable! The writing instruments I use / I recycle.”

3. 萝卜的奇妙游记 (The Wonderful Travels of Radish) via Weibo – China 

CN 5.18
Translation: “I posted a message for a friend. He didn’t have a Weibo. This is something he recycled at the nursing home he worked in yesterday. It is also very important for the promotion of the elderly!”

This winner entered on behalf of his friend, who collected oral care items such as used toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, and floss containers from a nursing home to recycle through the free Colgate program. Great to involve all ages in the collection of typically non-recyclable items!

You could be next! Before August 27, 2020, post a message, video or photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram that shows how you are still collecting for your favorite TerraCycle programs. Just tag @TerraCycle and include the hashtag #KeepOnRecycling.
