Boxed Helps Shoppers Recycle Home Products With Mail-In Program

Boxed has partnered with TerraCycle to enable customers to recycle packaging for any brand of home essentials and personal care products. The effort, which is sponsored by Procter & Gamble, lets users mail in waste using a prepaid shipping label available online. Once collected, the packaging is cleaned, separated by material composition and reduced to pellets that can be remolded to make new recycled products.

“Boxed has always prioritized recycling and reducing waste,” said Alison Weick, President, Ecommerce at Boxed in a statement. “By partnering with TerraCycle, we can now amplify our recycling efforts by offering our customers a free solution to properly dispose of hard-to-recycle materials.”

The program builds on Boxed’s earlier sustainability initiatives, including a partnership with TemperPack to introduce sustainable packaging for home delivery of chocolates and other desserts. Boxed also participated in the Canaccord Genuity Ecommerce Sustainable Advantage Virtual Forum this March to discuss sustainable practices.

TerraCycle also works with Carter’s to power the KIDCYLCE upcycling program, which lets families recycle old clothing. In 2021, the KIDCYCLE program saved 8,300 pounds of materials from landfills, and the program has since added brick-and-mortar drop-offs with pilots in 46 stores.
