Preserve®, the leading sustainable consumer products company, launched the Gimme 5 program in 2009 by working with Whole Foods Market and independent cooperative markets to offer a #5 plastic (PP) recycling option in their stores. Now, Preserve Gimme 5 collection bins are located in more than 200 Whole Foods Market stores in most regions of the U.S. as well as select independent cooperative markets. #5 plastic (polypropylene) recycling is also available through the Gimme 5 mail-in program.
Users can now earn Recyclebank Points for their recycling activities. Recyclebank is helping create a more sustainable future by rewarding people for taking everyday green actions, including checking in at Gimme 5 recycling locations. Members can redeem their Recyclebank Points for discounts and deals at local and national businesses.
The Gimme 5 program makes life a little simpler for people who want to 'do the right thing' with their # 5 plastic, yet do not have access to facilities or community recycling that accepts these polypropylene items.
"These strong, lightweight plastics are often redirected to landfills, but the Gimme 5 program ensures these recyclable materials find new life as Preserve products." - Preserve Founder and CEO, Eric Hudson
The partnership of Preserve®, Stonyfield Farm®, Brita®, Burt’s Bees® and Whole Foods Market® underwrites this program and reflects the five companies' shared commitment to protecting the environment. It also empowers people with a simple and effective recycling program that reduces the use of virgin materials in products.
