12. What Is TerraCycle?
Join Laura in Toronto as she speaks with Jessica Panetta, the Marketing and Communications Manager for TerraCycle Canada, as we talk about how TerraCycle started, how it works, how you can participate, and how you can get your workplace involved.

TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the “non-recyclable.” Whether it’s coffee capsules, pens from school, or plastic gloves from a manufacturing facility, TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste. They partner with individual collectors such as yourself, as well as major consumer product companies, retailers, manufacturers, municipalities, and small businesses across 21 different countries. With your help, they are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each month.
There are many free programs to participate in or you can actually purchase a zero waste box to mail in items that cannot be collected curbside. Use coupon code COUNTDOWN on TerraCycle.ca if you’re Canadian, or TerraCycle.com if you’re American to save 10%.
