Entenmann’s Little Bites "Recycle…Reuse…Replenish" Fully Recyclable Lunch Campaign {Prize Pack Giveaway!}

Entenmann's logo
Whereas my girls' interests might vary and change over time, one thing that they have both always stayed passionate about is helping the earth.

Whether it is the constant reminders to recycle every piece of paper, the disapproving looks as they hurry over to turn off an unneeded light, or the repeating questions as to why someone would even consider littering, I love knowing that they are growing up with care and concern about our planet.

Recently, we were introduced to yet another way to help make a difference... and it even involves delicious foods — a win-win! I'm not sure who was the most excited to join in the the Entenmann's Little Bites "Recycle… Reuse… Replenish" Fully Recyclable Lunch Campaign!

Little Bites recycle campaign

Entenmann's Bakery, the name that has been making life a little sweeter for more than 100 years with their amazing fresh-baked goods, has partnered with TerraCycle, an international leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable post-consumer waste.

Together, this dynamic team has launched the first-ever "Recycle…Reuse…Replenish" Fully Recyclable Lunch campaign that is helping kids become recycling pros and turn trash into cash for their schools!

The process couldn't be much easier (or more tasty). After kids snack on their favorite Entenmann's Little Bites muffins and brownies, they send the empty pouches to TerraCycle to be turned into new products through the Entenmann's Little Bites Pouch Brigade.

terracycle recycle

What a great way to teach kids the importance of reducing waste while earning money for their schools — I love that this unique partnership with TerraCycle demonstrates Entenmann's dedication to recycling and reducing the amount of Entenmann's Little Bites pouches that end up in landfills each year!

As the recycling and upcycling experts at TerraCycle are committed to creating new lives for Entenmann's Little Bites pouches, it is great knowing that the used packaging is turned into innovative new products, while also awarding points for schools that can be redeemed as cash for every Little Bites pouch received.

Entenmann's Little Bites Recycle Triangle

Entenmann's also has a great collection of Little Bites "Recycle…Reuse…Replenish" Fully Recyclable Lunch tips that can help the whole family stay green:

Recycle
  • Check-it: look for numbers and recycling symbols on plastics to know what types get reused.
  • Be sure to recycle your Little Bites pouches with the TerraCycle Brigade programs. Sign up your school if it is not already participating and check out what other lunch items TerraCycle recycles!
Reuse
  • Put your sandwich in reusable lunchbox container to take home and use again.
  • Before you toss anything away, stop to think about how you might be able to use it again. TerraCycle's team of designers make products out of wrappers and packaging and you can find DIY project ideas to try as well!
Replenish
  • Have any leftovers from lunch? Before you throw away, make sure to check out what biodegradable foods can be brought back home to be added to a compost pile.
  • Make compost at home! Be sure to include the three basic ingredients: Browns (dead leaves, branches, twigs, cardboard, newspaper), Greens (grass clippings, vegetable waste, fruit scraps, coffee grounds) and Water to make an effective outdoor composting area. More helpful info on composting at home can be found from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Big Sister E and Little Sister B were more than excited to enjoy the large variety of delicious Little Bites products while also knowing that their pouches would be recycled into things like garbage cans, park benches and even bike racks. Talk about a sweet idea!

JC said...

I love this campaign, great to give kids chances to respect and save our Earth.

Christina said...

I love it! We do as much as we can, as a family, to reduce-reuse-recycle.. so I think its great to see companies (especially ones my kids love - they always take the mini muffins in their lunch) having a part in something that is so important.

Kristen said...

It's a good idea...we all need reminders as we can all do better!

Daphne Turner said...

I think it's a workable idea and I'm glad to see they're offering it thorugh multiple blogs or sweeps areas.

Natalie said...

I think it is a great campaign and sending a great message to young kids.

steve weber said...

I think it's a wonderful thing they are doing.

dannyscotland said...

I love this program. I actually tried to get the school at which my mother works to participate (I don't have elementary school aged children) but they weren't interested (boo hiss). My daughter's preschool also did not participate, and at that point I just gave up. We go through TONS of these pouches and I hate throwing them away when I know they can be recycled! I'm excited to check out the link for finding locations where they can be recycled.

Shelly Peterson said...

It's a wonderful campaign. great for bringing more awareness.

jlafount said...

Anything to keep the world cleaner and teach kids something is good

stefanie gladden said...

I think it's a great idea! wish more companies had campaigns like this one!

Maryea said...

Absolutely agree with this program...I try to reuse everything I can, recycle the rest if possible.
We grow most of our own food. Guess that's our replenishing part.

Kelly Tupick said...

I think it's a great idea. I always try to recycle and reuse what I can. If everyone did this every day, we would see a whole lot less wasted. The schools should try to implement a group or club just for this purpose and to help kids to learn how to reuse and recycle what they can.

Tracey said...

I think it's a great idea whose time has come

Donice O said...

I homeschooled, and was always looking for ways to teach my children ways to help the environment. This is a great idea to encourage children to reuse and recycle.

Deb said...

It is THE BEST idea! IF ONLY we could get everyone to recycle. I know people who do not. And they do it because it does take a bit of work! Some people are way too lazy and do not actually see the big picture.

Deborah Wellenstein said...

It's a great campaign! I always like to see businesses take responsibility for the way they do business in regard to their footprint on this planet.

Tamra said...

It's a wonderful idea, we all need to recycle!

Kimberly M. said...

I think it's a wonderful campaign and am so glad that companies are actually starting to care about GMO's, the planet, etc. It has to be a worldwide project to protect people and the planet. It also teaches children about recycling. Great idea.

Sandra Wong said...

I think it's a great way to get people thinking a little more about the wastes they are producing and also about ways to recycle.

Tara said...

Love the tip about re-using lunch containers instead of plastic bags. It's such an easy thing to do!

llinda29 said...

The Entenmann's Little Bites 'Recycle...Reuse...Replenish' Fully Recyclable Lunch Campaign is proactive

Natalie B. said...

Hi! I think this campaign is a great idea! All of the packaging we throw away makes a crazy amount of garbage and if they have a way to reduce it great! I love the Little Bites too. Yummy! Thanks

gringasalsera1 said...

I love the recycling part: we need to teach our children by example.

I think Entenmann's campaign is great! Sometimes a reminder like this fun campaign is just what I need to keep up my resolve to do my part.

Denise said...

I was raised by my grandparents in the 70's, who had come of age in the depression. Avoiding waste was a big thing with them and my brother & I absorbed it well. A campaign like this really resonates with me.

Lonnette Jones said...

A great way to reduce and reuse.

Some Lucky Dog said...

Honestly...I think it's great that the package can be recycled, but I'd rather recycle at home and I'll teach my student about it myself. Let's do other more important things at school and get the corporations out of the classroom. I'm happy to make a monetary donation to our schools.

Daphne Lynn said...

I whole-heartedly approve! :)

Marnie Ward said...

I think this a great idea. Any thing that can be reused helps the whole world. The campaign also teaches kids about recycling and helps schools. What could be better?

Gayle Gildehaus said...

I think when big companies encourage recycling it has a big impact on peoples thinking.So,I think they are great to do this.
