I have seen the name Recyclebank floating around the internet and an occasional mention in a magazine for months but I never really checked it out. Until now, appropriately just before Earth Day.
I wish I had checked it our sooner because it is pretty cool.
Here’s the deal…
You sign up with Recyclebank and take “green” actions, like a fun interactive quiz or recycle at home, to earn points. You then redeem those points for great FREE rewards. That’s it, in a nutshell.
Some of the ways that you can earn points:
– Taking quizzes
– Making “green” pledges
– Reading and learning about Earth friendly topics
– Referring family and friends
– Purchasing Eco products
– Watching Videos
What rewards can you get for FREE?
– FREE Walmart Gift Cards
– FREE Best Buy Gift Cards
– FREE Home Depot Gift Cards
– FREE Magazine Subscriptions
– FREE Earth Friendly Products – like a U Konserve Food Wrap
– FREE Movie Ticket
– FREE Amazon Gift Card
– FREE Gallon of Milk
– FREE Discount Certificates
You can get FREE rewards with as little as 10 points. Obviously, the more desirable FREE items will be for more points. For example, a FREE Magazine will be about 150 – 250 points and a FREE $10 Walmart Gift Card is 2500 points.
BUT – I did earn 220 points within about 5 minutes of joining! It is really easy to earn a lot of points. So, I could already get a FREE Magazine, but I would rather wait until I’ve collected enough points to get something more useful to me like a FREE Gift Card.
There are new point earning opportunities all the time.
All in all, I think Recyclebank is a great program. It would be great to get kids involved as well so that they can learn about recycling and green living.
It’s a win-win-win – the Earth benefits, you benefit and the manufacturers that participate benefit.
