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:
- Plastic Free letchworth on Facebook – United Kingdom
Three of the most important aspects of a successful recycling program are the access people have to the program, their participation in it, and the separation of materials. Using cardboard as dividers in a wheelie bin so compartments are made within the bin, Plastic Free letchworth is sorting at the source when people drop off their waste, and just joined new recycling programs so they can collect even more!
2. Delphine Caillot on Facebook – France
Talk about taking this time to do something great! This school completely cleaned and redesigned their collecting space: they painted the walls with different colours according to the bins for each waste stream, and their slogan is “Recycling rhymes with solidarity” (it does rhyme in French!).
Caption Translation: hello, I wanted to share one of our projects this year that we carried out in our Notre Dame de Bellegarde establishment with the “E3D” team (establishment in a sustainable development approach). Not only do we raise awareness about ecology but we also help associations.
This year’s exceptional situation has delayed us a little but that’s not why we gave up! Here’s a little presentation on video…
Look 😀 Like 👍😍 share to inform and think about recycling! with us recycling rhymes with solidarity! ❤️
3. Pitadas +Verdes on Instagram – Brazil
Cleaning up at home can be clean for the enrionment when you recycle sponges and cleaning supplies, and Pitadas +Verdes created this informative video explaining the importance of collecting sponges and writing instruments! They ask their followers to consider how many dishwashing sponges and writing instruments they use and throw away each year, and go on to explain TC Brazil can recycle them and ask their followers to create an account.
Caption Translation: Have you thought about how many dishwashing sponges we use?
And how many writing materials are discarded each year?
There are many for sure and all can also be properly allocated through the @terracyclebr program.
