Wednesday, Apr 10, 2013
MONTREAL, April 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - GoGo squeeZ - the first squeezable, re-sealable, 100 % fruits product in a pouch - is set to revolutionize how consumer dispose of their packaging. The brand is proud to announce a new partnership with TerraCycle, an international upcycling and recycling company that takes difficult to recycle consumer packaging and repurposes it into affordable, high quality eco-friendly goods.
The partnership creates the GoGo squeeZ Brigade, a free recycling program that enables families, individuals or any organization across the nation to participate and ship in their used pouches, free of charge. For each GoGo squeeZ pouch that TerraCycle receives, the Brigade member earns two points, redeemable for a variety of charitable gifts or a donation of 2 cents to put toward their school, religious organization, community group or any charity of their choice.
Not only does this initiative help divert waste ending up in landfills, but
participants get a chance to raise much needed funds for communities across Canada and can educate and empower kids to get more involved in recycling and resource conservation. To participate, consumers can sign up for free and can download a prepaid UPS shipping label from their TerraCycle account and mail in their used pouches at no cost.
