Zero Waste: Recycle Your Gutsey Wrappers
The impact of waste
Over the past 100 years, the amount of waste that humanity produces has increased by almost 10,000 percent. Of that staggering volume, it is estimated that 25 percent ends up in our oceans, forming five gigantic gyres of garbage. Since only a small percentage gets recycled the majority is effectively mummified in landfills, leaching out methane and other toxic outputs over time. If it is not buried, it is typically burned in incinerators. While a very small percentage of incinerators do produce some energy as an output, in the process they also destroy all possible value except the caloric (or energy) value inherent in the materials.
TerraCycle Waste Box
TerraCycle reuses, upcycles, and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. This moves waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to keep cycling in our economy.
Candy and Snack Wrappers are typically non-recyclable waste. But with the Terracycle Waste Box, GUTSEY WRAPPERS CAN BE RECYCLED and turned into a raw material to be used in new products!
To help us reduce waste we encourage all of our customers to save your empty wrappers and send them back to us at the address listed below. We have a TerraCycle box on site specifically dedicated to recycling "snack wrappers" that all wrappers will go in. As a special thank you Gutsey will issue a $10 credit to your account that can be used on your next Gutsey bar order!
