Being committed to diverting waste from landfill and improving how much the company recycles, Mythics Green utilizes TerraCycle as part of our Recycling Program. TerraCycle is a company that takes non-recyclable or hard to recycle items and turns them into new, upcycled products. The reward for our participation is a point system, where we earn points to spend on our good cause of choice. Mythics involves our employees in the decision making by asking them to choose which charity is most important to them. Our employees can choose from reducing a tonne of carbon through Carbonfund.org, providing clean water through charity:water, planting a tree through Arbor Day Foundation, and other charity options. By involving our staff, we are able to further educate recycling awareness. Currently, we send TerraCycle our used, broken, or unwanted cellphones, laptops, tablets, e-readers, miscellaneous e-waste, dairy tub containers, personal care and beauty products, writing utensils, and other items that are generally difficult to recycle through our standard recycling provider.
In January of 2014, Mythics was able to provide twenty-two people with clean drinking water and sustainable sanitation solutions for a year through charity:water. Mythics Green is proud to say that the company’s donation was possible by simply recycling.
