team up for a community recycling program – Give us your used squeezie food pouches!
Don’t you just love squeezie fruit pouches as a healthy snack for your kids!? They can be consumed on the go, don’t have to be refrigerated, and pack really easily. So did I, until I learned that they cannot be recycled…until now!
My company, Recycled Registry.com has formed a strategic partnership with TerraCycle to collect and re-puropse post-consumer waste (i.e. squeezie food pouches) that cannot be traditionally recycled. Our first permanent collection location will be Rock A My Baby, and we will be kicking off this program at the Castle Rock Starlighting on November 23 from 2-7pm.
At the Starlighting, We will have 3 “secret” locations throughout the neighborhood for recycling squeezie pouches. Simply find our ‘secret’ locations, recycle your pouches, and get your secret password at the receptacle which will give you 30% off one item during the Starlighting Festival at Rock A My Baby’s Starlighting location inside Glitter Boutique on Perry Street. After the event, you can bring your squeezie pouches to Rock a My Baby’s boutique at 107 5th Street Castle Rock, Co 80104.
This innovative partnership was formed because both organizations share the vision of being good stewards of our resources and serving local families. In fact, one reason I started Recycled Registry.com was a way to reduce the amount of baby products going into our landfills. If you are like me, and don’t need everything for your kiddos to be brand-spankin’ new, then re-purposing between friends might be for you too!
Here’s how Recycled Registry.com works. You create a party invitation – baby shower, birthday, Christmas, etc. Then you create your Registry, or wish list of items, that is directly attached to your party invitation. For each Registry item, you can let your guests know if you will accept that item new or used. That way, your friends and family can shop a boutique baby store, their own basements, online, or consignment. Think of us as a combination of “evite” with a hand-me-down wish list attached.
Recycled Registry.com respects your budget and will never charge you to use our online service. We are also proud to be the official Registry Service of Rock A My Baby – so sign up for a FREE ACCOUNT today and plan an event using Recycled Registry.com!
And please remember to bring your squeezie pouches to Rock A My Baby to reduce the post consumer waste generated by our littlest planet dwellers. See you at the Star Lighting!
