RecycleBank wins award
RecycleBank™, a rewards program that motivates people to recycle, has been selected as a winner of the 2007 Philadelphia Sustainability Award. The Philadelphia Sustainability Awards are the first awards in the Philadelphia region to recognize those who are leading the way to a more sustainable future.
RecycleBank was among more than 50 businesses, non-profits, community organizations, individuals, schools and government agencies nominated for the award.
These awards were organized by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and eight partner organizations to recognize all of those who are making Philadelphia a more sustainable place to live.
RecycleBank is able to motivate households and communities to recycle by providing them with the tools to quickly and easily measure the amount of material each home recycles. The amount of material recycled is then converted into RecycleBank dollars that can be used at hundreds of local and national retailers and other rewards partners.
Currently, RecycleBank has more than 300 local and national rewards partners dedicated to its mission to encourage communities and households to recycle in exchange for RecycleBank dollars. National rewards partners include Coke, Patagonia, Whole Foods, Timberland and many others that allow households to redeem their RecycleBank dollars.
