Once you have signed up for the Drink Pouch Brigade, start collecting! When you are ready to send your drink pouches to TerraCycle, log-in to your account and download a prepaid shipping label. Please seal the box or bag of drink pouches and drop it off at a UPS drop-off location near you.
TerraCycle accepts shipments of any size
, large or small (there is NO minimum!) but for shipments of at least 5 lbs, or roughly 555 drink pouches, your collection location will also earn TerraCycle points that can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or for a cash donation of $.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.
Units per Drink Pouch Brigade shipment are calculated based upon weight. Drink pouches will be counted based upon an average weight of .009 lbs. per drink pouch. As of September 2013, the rewards for shipments through the Drink Pouch Brigade are as follows:
Less than 5 lbs. per shipment: 0 points per pouch
5 lbs. to 12 lbs per shipment: 0.5 points per pouch
13 lbs. to 20 lbs. per shipment: 1 point per pouch
21 lbs. to 48 lbs. per shipment: 2 points per pouch
49 lbs. or more per shipment: 3 points per pouch
