Whaingaroa Environment Centre is participating in a nationwide innovative recycling programme to save wrappers from landfill and fundraise towards a local project.

Over 200 locations across the country, including Raglan’s Whaingaroa Environment Centre are participating in the Mondelez, Confectionery Wrapper Brigade run by TerraCycle, a global company that recycles difficult and “non-recyclable” waste.

The collected waste will then be recycled into affordable, sustainable consumer products and materials. For every confectionery wrapper returned, TerraCycle will make a donation of two cents to the school or charity organisation of the collector’s choice.

Check out TerraCycle's new initiative to recycle toothbrushes and coffee capsules. But don't forget, you can buy bamboo toothbrushes from the Herbal Dispensary and make your own coffee from Raglan Roast! These recyclers aren't the solution to the problem, but they're creating awareness in the right direction.
