We use plastic for food storage and freshness, with GLAD a favourite for wrapping and storing school lunches. But now, with the firm focus being on schools moving towards a litter less environment, what happens when it’s time for ‘all this plastic’ to be disposed of?

At GLAD, we asked ourselves the same important question.

Here’s our answer…

Rather than contribute to landfills and ever-increasing volumes of rubbish we’ve decided that change is a good thing and an exciting step forward. So we’d like to introduce you to our new recycling/upcycling initiative and partnership with global recycling company - Terracycle

The GLAD Food Storage Brigade.

With an eye firmly on the future to reduce plastic waste, the Brigade is a truly unique recycling solution to help divert plastic from landfill and educate people on the way they think about plastic waste and the actions they then take to reduce it.

Here’s how to get involved.

  1. Collect any used GLAD food storage products from home, school or work
  2. Sign up on the TerraCycle website to claim your free shipping label.
  3. Then drop off boxed GLAD plastic waste at any NZ Post Office.

The GLAD Food Storage Brigade accepts:

  • GLAD Cling Wrap® (plastic film)
  • GLAD Snap Lock® Bags (including Disney)
  • GLAD Zip Slide® Bags
  • GLAD MatchWare® containers

For accepted GLAD food storage products received, your collection location is awarded 2 TerraCycle points. Redeem these points for a payment of NZD$0.01 per point, which can then be allocated towards a school or charity of your choice.
