NEW ZEALANDERS OFFERED ANOTHER FREE RECYCLING PROGRAMME FOR JEUNEORA PRODUCTS
In a market-leading move to further promote sustainability, nutraceuticals company, Jeuneora, has partnered with TerraCycle to launch a free recycling programme that makes Jeuneora products nationally recyclable.
Through the Jeuneora Recycling Programme, New Zealanders can now collect and ship all their powder pots, including labels, and scoops free-of-charge to TerraCycle, who will shred, wash and melt them down into raw materials to be used as an alternative to virgin plastic.
Additionally, by recycling in the programme, collectors earn $1 for every kilogram of waste recycled toward their nominated New Zealand school or charity. Globally, over US$21 million has been raised for schools and non-profit organisations worldwide through TerraCycle’s free recycling programs.
Meg, co-founder of Jeuneora, says “Jeuneora is thrilled to launch our new recycling program with TerraCycle. This was the next step for us in promoting sustainability, keeping plastic away from our oceans, and keeping our products environmentally friendly which is a core part of Jeuneora’s ethos.”
“We’re really excited to partner with Jeuneora and recycle even more waste that would otherwise be destined for landfill,” said Jean Bailliard, General Manager of TerraCycle Australia and New Zealand. “The programme heralds an ambitious commitment to the environment for everyone involved.”
New Zealanders can visit www.terracycle.co.nz, join the Jeuneora Recycling Programme for free and start collecting used Jeuneora powder pots and scoops in any old cardboard box. When full, they log into their TerraCycle account, download a free New Zealand Post shipping label, stick it to the box of waste and drop it off at their nearest post office, free of charge.
TerraCycle collects typically ‘non-recyclable’ waste that isn’t accepted in kerbside recycling, such as toothbrushes, coffee capsules and cigarette butts, and turns them into cool new products like garden beds, park benches and playgrounds.
Globally, TerraCycle has diverted over 4.1 billion pieces of waste from landfill and incineration, won numerous awards for sustainability and donated over $21 million to schools and charities since its founding 15 years ago.
