According to the news, the Kroger Corporation recently announced an expansion of its Simple Truth Recycling Program. The program provides customers with a method to recycle flexible plastic packaging, including all private branded brands. The newly expanded Kroger Brand Recycling Program is the first of its kind and develops retailer Zero Hunger / Zero Waste’s social and environmental impact plan, according to a company press release.
While, they have developed in partnership with TerraCycle, our Kroger brand recycling program encourages customers to mail in flexible plastic packaging of our brands, including crisps, snack bags, shredded cheese bags, frozen food bags, pouches, meat and cheese bags, cereal and cereal bags, as well as Flexible plastic pet food packages. A growing list of eligible products can be found at Kroger.com. To participate in the program, customers are required to first register at www.Terracycle.com/Kroger.
Then they can collect the flexible plastic packaging (sacks, bags, liners and wrappers) from our exclusive brands of Kroger, including Simple Truth, Private Selection, Kroger Brand, Comforts, and Abound, in whatever box is available. When the collection box is full, it can then be shipped to TerraCycle using the free prepaid shipping label available in customer accounts on the program page. Customers can start earning points for every pound of eligible packaging sent and redeem the points as donations to participating charities.
The Kroger Our Brands Recycling Program is open to any interested individual, school, office or community organization. After receipt, the collected packaging will be cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be reshaped to make new recycled products. In a distinct but complementary program to facilitate more recycling, Kroger continues to offer customers the option to bring certain types of plastic films to the store for recycling by various partners. Customers can deliver single-use grocery shopping plastic bags, dry cleaning bags, newspaper bags, bag production, baking bags, plastic cereal box liners, multi-package wrappers etc. Specific items that qualify for our trademark Kroger recycling program must not be returned to in-store collection bins.
