Here's how the program works:
TerrCycle will collect your empty pouches, clean them up, and re-melt them into plastic pellets that can be molded and shaped into new, useful items. And so the adventure continues...
Create an account on TerraCycle.com
Save your Mountain House pouches instead of throwing them away.*
When you're ready to recycle them, log in to your TerraCycle account & print a pre-paid shipping label. Then just box 'em up, slap on the shipping label, and...
That's it! You can even earn points which turn into donations for a school or non-profit of your choice.
*this program is currently limited to the US only, excluding Alaska & Hawaii.
