Organic rice, rice products and US-grown quinoa company Lundberg Family Farms is working with international Trenton-based recycling leader TerraCycle to offer consumers a free, easy way to recycle their flexible Lundberg Family Farms packaging and food wrappers. As an added incentive, for every pound of packaging waste sent to TerraCycle through the recycling program, collectors can earn $1 to donate to a non-profit, school, or charitable organization of their choice.
By participating in the Lundberg Family Farms Recycling Program, consumers are invited to send in their empty flexible packaging and food wrappers to be recycled for free. Participation is easy: sign up on the TerraCycle program page www.terracycle.com/lundberg-family-farms and mail in the packaging waste using the prepaid shipping label provided. Once collected, the packaging will be cleaned, melted and remolded to make new recycled plastic products.
“Lundberg Family Farms was founded on my Grandpa Albert’s promise to leave the world better than we found it,” CEO Grant Lundberg said. “We are excited to partner with our friends at TerraCycle to deliver on that promise in a new way, with packaging that can skip the landfill for a second life as durable plastic goods, like park benches.”
For more than eighty years and four generations, Lundberg Family Farms has pioneered eco-positive farming methods to nourish, conserve, and innovate for a healthier world. What began as a small family rice farm in 1937, has grown into a mission-driven, vertically integrated company that’s committed to blazing the trail towards a brighter, more sustainable future.
“At TerraCycle, our mission has always been to eliminate waste, recycle the unrecyclable and use our innovative business solutions to minimize human impact on the planet,” said TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky. “It’s partnerships like the one we enjoy with Lundberg Family Farms that allow us to fulfill our objective and help preserve the environment for future generations.”
The Lundberg Family Farms Recycling Program is open to any interested individual, school, office, or community organization. For more information on TerraCycle’s recycling program, visit www.terracycle.com.
