Green idea of the month: TerraCycle Recycling Project
TerraCycle is an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes these into affordable, innovative products.
The aim is to reduce waste and its impact on the environment.
TerraCycle offers national programs (each one is called a “Brigade”) to collect non-recyclable or hard to recycle waste.
By sending waste to TerraCycle you will get points that can be converted into donations for a charitable /non-profit organization of your choice.
TerraCycle and Colgate have partnered to create the Colgate Oral Care Brigade, the first recycling program for oral care products. Colgate Oral Care Brigade accepts toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrushes, toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging and floss containers.
Boutiquehotel Stadthalle also takes part in this program: we collect all empty tubes of toothpaste, dental floss containers, old toothbrushes and plastic packaging of dental care products that have been submitted by our guests and send these to TerraCycle to be upcycled.
Protect the environment and support a good cause during your stay at Boutiquehotel Stadthalle and hand your empty tooth paste, your tooth brush or your dental floss containers over to our staff members, or simply leave them in your room!
