What are Recyclebank Points?
Recyclebank Points are earned through various green actions such as pledging to use less water, taking quizzes, making eco-friendlier purchases, and learning how to live a sustainable life. Check out Recyclebank.com for a full list of ways to earn points.
These points can be redeemed at hundreds of local and national retailers for discounts on groceries, a night out, or hundreds of other perks. Check out the Get Rewards page to see where you can use your points.
Please note: You need a Recyclebank Account to earn and use points. If you do not have an account, you will have the opportunity to create one on Earth911.com. It’s free and easy to join.
How do I get Recyclebank Points?
Currently, there are two ways:
- Registering for the Earth911 Newsletters.
- Reading stories on Earth911.com, with a maximum of 3 opportunities to earn each day. Simply read an article and click the “Get My Points” button at the end of the story, or on the last page of articles that contain more than one page.
In the future, we hope to offer you more ways to get points for making better choices!
