Crown Prince Seafood Recycles to Bring Water to Developing Nations

July 8, 2011

The Crown Prince team is participating in another new recycling program with the help of TerraCycle.net, which accepts hard to recycle items and makes being green a little easier. For every waste item sent in to be recycled, TerraCycle will either pay 2 cents or offer 2 points that can be redeemed at a later time. (Each point is worth a penny.) We chose the program for the points, and we’re planning to use the benefits for charity donations.

Not only are we raising money for charity by helping to save the environment, we’re giving back to the environment by sending our proceeds to charity: water. They are a non-profit organization that brings safe drinking water to the people living in developing nations mainly located in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. For 6 points we can provide clean water to one person for a week! Here’s what we are recycling:

Tape: disposable plastic tape dispensers and the center plastic core of tape rolls

            Writing Instruments: any used writing instruments such as pens, pencils, highlighters and markers

            Personal Care and Beauty Product Packaging: cosmetic containers, shampoo and conditioner bottles, body wash containers, soap and lotion dispensers, nail polish bottles and more!

            Outer Plastic Wrappers: Any brand and any size of outer plastic wrapping from paper products such as paper towels or bath tissue

With almost one billion people on our planet lacking access to clean drinking water, we’re hoping to help make a difference. You can too- just visit TerraCycle.net and start recycling today!
