Recycle your food pouch & snack wrapper waste with Whole Kids
Whole Kids®, Australia’s largest range of certified organic snack foods for kids, has teamed up with TerraCycle® to create the Kids Pouch and Snack Recycling Program, a free recycling program that provides a second life for Whole Kids pouches and caps, food bar wrappers, snack food bags and other packaging waste.
The Kids Pouch & Snack Recycling Program will be closing on the 31st July, with shipping labels no longer available after the 15th of June.
Please request your shipping labels before the 15th of June and finalise your shipments before the 31st of July in order to have a valid shipment and your points counted!
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Request a postage label” and follow the prompts. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office.
Please see the video below for more information on the Kids Pouch & Snack Recycling Program:
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover fruit purée). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Once collected, the food pouches and snack wrappers are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
Need help getting started? From downloadable posters to videos and guides, there are plenty of resources available to help you make an even bigger difference on the environment.
