Outsmart waste

When is an Eco Refill pack not an Eco Refill pack? The answer is when it’s a park bench or watering can, of course.

TerraCycle® is a company with a brilliantly simple idea – to turn everyday waste items that aren’t recyclable through normal household collections into new products. Once you’ve finished with our Kenco Eco Refill packs our friends at TerraCycle will turn them into new plastics to make a whole range of eco-friendly products like park benches, watering cans or waste bins. They also collect other waste from our factories to make into shopping bags and pencil cases.

It won’t cost you a penny to send your Kenco Eco Refill packs to TerraCycle. All you have to do is download a free postage label, pop it in the post and they’ll take care of the rest. We’ll even donate 2 TerraCycle points which can be redeemed for a 2p contribution to a nominated charity or school for every one you return.

What about upcycling?

Even though the waste from our factories is upcycled into shopping bags and pencil cases, we’ve found that recycling is by far the best way to re-use used Eco Refill packs. Once these have been melted and pelletized, the new plastic can be used to create a bigger variety of recycled products.
