Partnership Focuses on Recycling Hard-to-Recycle Items
CAMDEN, N.J., April 1, 2021 /3BL Media/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. today announced that it will renew its commitment to help divert hard-to-recycle waste from landfills and incinerators through the automaker's environmentally-focused philanthropic platform, Subaru Loves the Earth, by continuing its ongoing partnership with international recycling leader TerraCycle®.
The Camden-based carmaker said the new program, created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related use of items like disposable masks and gloves, expands on its current partnership with the Trenton-based firm.
What do a water bottle, a KitKat wrapper and a cat litter box all have in common? They each play key roles in our ongoing push to find innovative ways to secure a future in which none of our packaging ends up in landfill.
Our partnership with TerraCycle – a social enterprise behind some of the world's most important ventures in eliminating waste – is one of the ways in which we are trying to make this happen.
Subaru and TerraCycle Expand Partnership to Offer Safe Recycling Solutions for PPE Waste
CAMDEN, N.J., August 20, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Subaru of America, Inc., today announced a new recycling initiative to recycle personal protective equipment (PPE) waste in response to the increase in waste due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new initiative is an expansion of the automaker’s existing recycling collection partnership with TerraCycle®, the world's leader in the collection and repurposing of complex waste streams.
As demand for sustainable packaging solutions reached its apex, the COVID-19 pandemic seemed to stall progress as disposable gloves and single-use shopping bags returned to even the most sustainable consumers’ homes.
The annual celebration of Plastic-Free July last month felt a bit ironic as single-use solutions remained necessary to protect health and safety in this unprecedented moment in time.
Online shopping has become an essential way consumers access goods during the coronavirus pandemic. But many retail chains generate up to 75 percent of their revenue from brick-and-mortar stores in non-pandemic times — meaning they’re now looking for other ways to sell and move their inventory.
