Editor's Note: Earlier this month, we announced that we were teaming up with TerraCycle to host a car seat recycling event in nearly 4,000 stores across the country. The response from our customers was incredible, far exceeding both our and TerraCycle’s expectations.
Due to the overwhelming response from our customers, we reached capacity for this program, so we completed the event on Saturday, Sept. 21. In less than one week, we collected more than 1 million car seats – or the equivalent of diverting over 200+ million plastic bottles from landfills, according to TerraCycle.
We are thrilled to have worked with TerraCycle and that so many customers and associates participated. Through the car seat recycling event, we’ll help families to keep their kids safe and help reduce plastic waste from landfills. We look forward to hosting future events supporting the needs of parents and families.
