RB Teams Up with TerraCycle for a Healthy You and a Healthy Planet
Because the planet deserves a healthy you, and you deserve a healthy planet, RB Health and TerraCycle have come together with a simple way to help protect the environment while supporting the brands you know and love.
Why TerraCycle and what is it?
TerraCycle is doing their part to help keep the environment fresh by offering free and easy recycling programs for items that can’t be recycled curbside. Why is this important? Because garbage doesn’t exist in nature’s natural order. Processed and synthetic materials aren’t able to be “recycled” back into the Earth properly for environmental use and this amplifies the idea of waste. Due to its lack of usage, displaced waste creates a hazardous eco-system. TerraCycle’s free program allows non-curbside recyclables to be reused, turned into compost, upcycled, recycled, and converted into closed-loop solutions.

And it doesn’t stop there! In exchange for your empty recyclables, members receive points that are redeemed for charitable gifts or cash for your favorite school or nonprofit organization. Read further to learn more about the rewards program.
How does TerraCycle work?
It really is quite simple…
Ship… it’s just that easy!
An interactive map of public drop-off locations is in the works, but if you’re interested—become a public drop-off point for the RB Health & Nutrition Recycling Program.
So, what’s TerraCycle-able?
For this program, the following items fit the bill:
- Dietary Supplement packaging: blister packs, tubes, bottles, caps, lids, cans, boxes
- Sexual health and well-being packaging: tubes, bottles, caps, lids, wrappers, pouches, boxes (condoms not included)
- Cough, cold, flu, sore throat, and nasal care packaging: blister packs, tubes, bottles, spray bottles, caps, lids
