I’m a big fan of recycling. It’s an easy thing I can do to help the environment and my community by sending less garbage to the landfill. I’m excited that now I, and many other residents of Southern Florida, can earn rewards for recycling and taking other green actions!
Communities across the country have made a commitment to be cleaner and greener by partnering with Recyclebank, the company that inspires and rewards smarter, everyday choices for a more sustainable future. In Broward County alone, Lauderdale Lakes, Davie, Coconut Creek, Margate, Tamarac, Sunrise, Hollywood, and now Cooper City, which launched on January 15, are working with Recyclebank to encourage residents to recycle more and recycle right.
Here’s how it works:
- If you live in one of the towns mentioned above, once registered at recyclebank.com, you can start earning points based on the amount of recyclables collected in your neighborhood.
- You can also earn points by participating in online activities like quizzes about sustainability or playing games that show how to properly dispose of those hard-to-recycle items. There are also some great tips on making your life easier and healthier, like how to pack a green lunch for your kids.
- Once you’ve accumulated some points, you can use those points to “shop” on Recyclebank.com for discounts and deals on some of your favorite clothing brands, home goods, and magazine subscriptions.
- You can also use your points to shop in Recyclebank’s online store OneTwine which features products, hand-selected for their sustainability (i.e. less packaging, less toxins) making them better for your family and your wallet.
Broward County is a wonderful place to live. With Recyclebank, we can now get rewarded for doing our part to keep our community beautiful, safe and green (and save a little money while we’re at it)!
