Give Your Garbage Another Go!

Give Your Garbage Another Go!

Calling all Cookie and Cracker Wrapper Brigade collectors! Throughout May and June, tell us about your cookie and cracker wrapper collections or create your own upcycled item made of used packaging, for a chance to win some amazing TerraCycle prize packs.

GIVE YOUR GARBAGE ANOTHER GO WINNERS!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Give Your Garbage Another Go contest in May and June. We received some amazing entries! We greatly appreciate your continued enthusiasm and efforts, and hope that you enjoyed participating. Check out some of the winning submissions below:

Enter the Give Your Garbage Another Go contest, in one of two ways:

  1. Design your own upcycled item made of cookie and cracker wrappers. You could create a notebook cover, a hair accessory or an article of clothing. Get creative!
  2. Tell us a bit about your TerraCycle collections. What do you feel are the top three benefits of participating in the Cookie and Cracker Wrapper Brigade? Feel free to share a photo of your cookie and cracker wrapper collections as well!

The top ideas and answers win but your Give Your Garbage Another Go entry must contain your name or the name of your collecting organization, and your city and province, in order to qualify for the cool TerraCycle products.

The entries that best rise to the challenge will be the upcycled items that are most commercially-viable and creative, and "essay" entries that demonstrate passion for the TerraCycle mission and thus provide compelling benefits to participating in the Cookie and Cracker Wrapper Brigade.

When you submit an entry, you will be entered into the Give Your Garbage Another Go contest. The three best entries from across Canada will be rewarded, as well as the top three entries in Ontario, Quebec, Eastern Canada, and Western Canada. This means there will be a total of 15 different winners.

The best entries will be chosen by the TerraCycle Canada team at the end of the contest period. Winners will be notified on or around July 15, 2013.

National Winners: The top three entries from across the nation will be awarded the following prizes:

  • National Grand Prize Winner: 4 collection boxes, 50 recycled wrist bands, 100 upcycled cork boards, 105 biodegradable pens, and 150 packages of eco-friendly paper
  • National First Runner-Up: 4 collection boxes, 50 recycled wrist bands, 105 biodegradable pens, and 112 packages of eco-friendly paper
  • National Second Runner-Up: 4 collection boxes, 50 recycled wrist bands and 50 packages of eco-friendly paper

Regional Winners: The three best entries from Ontario, Quebec, Eastern Canada, and Western Canada will be awarded the following prizes:

  • Regional 1st Place: 25 packages of eco paper and 150 recycled wrist bands
  • Regional 2nd Place: 20 packages of eco paper and 40 recycled wrist bands
  • Regional 3rd Place: 18 packages of eco paper and 27 recycled wrist bands

Please note: A location cannot be both a regional winner and national winner. There will be a total of 15 different winners for this contest. Should there not be sufficient winning entries in any one region, TerraCycle will award an additional entry from a different region.

All eligible participating Brigade participants are subject to the Give Your Garbage Another Go Rules. Prizes have been graciously provided by Mr. Christie’s.
