If you’re already a fan of Honest Tea’s healthy, organic, and delicious drinks then get ready, because the company is out to really make a difference – by hosting The Great Recycle, an event to raise awareness about the importance of recycling. But not only can you help, you can earn cool prizes at the same time.
On Monday, April 30th, Honest Tea will put a 30 foot recycling bin in the middle of Times Square. Their goal is to collect 45,000 beverage containers in one day, which happens to be approximately the number of bottles Honest Tea sells in one day in NYC. It will be going on from 8am – 6pm.
Any beverage containers you bring to their event in Times Square will act as currency and be redeemable for great prizes at the TRASHed Recycling store, which will be right there at the site of the massive recycling bin. Bring more bottles, earn more points, and redeem for bigger and better prizes. There will also be ways on site to multiply your points, but it’s all on a first come, first serve basis.
You can redeem your points for one of the follow (while supplies last):
- 1 Point = Stickers / Honest Tea bracelet
- 2 Points = Bottles of cold Honest Tea and assorted other snacks
- 5 Points = Reusable Honest Tea bags
