TerraCycle recycles hard-to-recycle products and packaging and turns those materials into new items like park benches, bike racks, picnic tables, and flower pots. TerraCycle’s goal is to eliminate the idea of waste by educating, engaging, and inspiring students, families, and the general public to be more aware and active about environmental issues.

With the Zero Waste Box program — part of the larger Subaru Loves the Earth initiative — TerraCycle and Subaru have partnered to create a more sustainable retail experience and a cleaner world by collecting disposable cups and lids, snack wrappers, and coffee, tea, and creamer capsules at participating retail stores. So far, the Zero Waste Box program has diverted more than 500,000 pounds of waste from landfills and turned it into useful items for our communities. That’s about 150 Subaru Outback vehicles.
