Recycle your yogurt!

Quick post-and-run at lunch, but I wanted to make you aware of two awesome recycling programs for your yogurt lids and containers.

Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point made me aware of the first one: if you mail in four Stonyfield Farm foil yogurt lids before the end of December, you’ll not only receive a bunch of Stonyfield coupons but you’ll also receive a free reusable 8oz. yogurt cup from Preserve, a company that makes household products out of recycled #5 polypropylene plastic (like yogurt containers!).  You’ll also receive a coupon from Preserve to buy their cool stuff!

Mail your foil lids to:

Stonyfield Farm; Reusable Cup Offer

PO Box 4840

Manchester, NH 03108-4840

Did you know that you can also recycle your yogurt cups and other #5 containers?  Preserve makes all of their products using #5 containers collected from individuals (as well as donations from companies such as Stonyfield), and they have two options for #5 container donation: you can drop off your washed containers at your local drop-off site (see here for locations by state), or you can mail them here:

Preserve Gimme 5
823 NYS Rte 13
Cortland, NY 13045

If you are mailing containers, Preserve asks you to make sure to include your return address so they can thank you…I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds good! 😉  I’ll send in my containers and let you know what happens!
