Recycle Bank - New Year's = 90 Points



Recycle Bank is another online site that I joined last year that I absolutely LOVE.  Yes, you know by now that I am into recycling and personally, I think everyone should be required to do it.  Recycle Bank offers a lot of great information on how to recycle and you can earn points on it as well. 

There are a products who are partners with Recycle Bank and they offer ways for you to earn points.  For example, if you watch a video about Ziploc and recycling plastic bags, you earn points.  Then, if you happen to purchase Ziploc bags with the special recycle emblem on the front, there is a code in the box.  Enter the code and you get more points. 

In 2011 Recycle Bank started a little program called "Green The Seasons" and each season they had a virtual walk through of things you could do for that season to live a greener life and cut down on your carbon footprint.  By following the virtual tour and participating in the various little scenarios (i.e., taking a quizz, uploading a recipe, etc.) you can earn points.  Right now you can do the New Year's virtual tour.

Ziploc, Q-Tips, Coca Cola, Kashi and others are all partnered with Recycle Bank in some form for you to learn how they are participating in recycling and how you can recycle their products, and yes, you earn points.

You can also earn points by recycling your old electronics. 

O.K. O.K. what can you do with the points?  Plenty.  You can redeem them for special cents off coupons that you won't find in the weekly flyers or online.  You can cash them in for Gift Cards to places like Wal-Mart, Panera Bread, Home Depot and others.  You can get coupons for your favorite stores at the Mall like Macy's, K-Mart, Sunglass Hut, Dicks Sporting Goods, etc.

There are lots of ways you can use the points.  Personally, I save mine up and then cash them in for My Coke Rewards Points which equals free Coca Cola for that Cocaholic I'm married to.

Another WIN / WIN situation for you.  You learn more about recycling, how to do it, companies who are promoting it and you get to reap the rewards as well.  Check  Recycle Bank out today....it won't take you but a few moments and you'll be surprised at quickly you can earn points.
