About Recyclebank

Recyclebank inspires and rewards smarter, everyday choices for a more sustainable future. It brings together people, businesses, and communities to achieve real world impact. By participating in household recycling and learning how to live more sustainable lifestyles, more than 4.5 million people earn points that translate into real savings for community and national brands. Recyclebank’s online shop, OneTwine.com, combines the company’s sustainability expertise and rewards program to help people choose products that are better for their home, their wallet and the planet.  

Our mission is to inspire people to live more sustainably. We started with recycling, and have since added other ways for people to easily incorporate sustainability into their daily lives. It was a natural step for us to extend that experience to the products we believe in.

The Change We Seek®

Recyclebank believes that small, individual actions, such as changing how we purchase, consume and dispose of things, can collectively have a big impact. They've  found a mix of education, rewards and impact metrics help people live more sustainable lifestyles. Through online engagement and their recycling incentives program, they’ve helped increase recycling rates in more than 300 communities, partnered to recycle nearly 3.8 billion pounds of waste, and helped move people toward a more sustainable future. Their 4.5 million members earn hundreds of points a year from learning how to live more sustainably, and taking small actions to achieve real impact. These points can be redeemed for rewards such as gift cards, products and discounts, translating into real savings. On average, a household can earn up to $165 annually in rewards value. People can also use their points toward savings on some of our favorite products for their home and families on One Twine, Recyclebank’s online shop.
