To date, we've diverted 3.8 billion pieces of waste from landfill and incineration worldwide. Through our sustainability-focused business model, collectors can also earn donation dollars toward their nominated school or non-profit organization - it's a win-win. So far, TerraCycle has raised over US $15 million for schools and non-profits.
