August 31th, 2022: Go Mouthwash, a company that distributes travel-size mouthwash packets, has partnered with TerraCycle to recycle these single-use mouthwash packets. As a company that produces single-use products, Go Mouthwash is making an effort to encourage sustainable practices such as recycling by facilitating the process for consumers of the product. Thanks to this recent partnership, consumers can now recycle their Go Mouthwash packets in four easy steps when using Terra Cycle.
First, participants consolidate their packets and place them in any box to ship back to Go Mouthwash. Then they request a label from the company by providing box dimensions and weight, which can all be done through the Go Mouthwash recycling program page. Go Mouthwash then provides a shipping label for the consumer to send their consolidated, used packets back to the company. These packets are gathered by Go Mouthwash and sent to Terra Cycle for the final step in which the used packets are recycled or up-cycled into new products.
“Our company wants to do everything we can to minimize our ecological footprint and promote sustainable business practices. Although our products are intended for one-time use, we went out of our way to distribute our mouthwash products in packaging that can be easily recycled through TerraCycle,” said Austin Loper, the Co-founder of Go Mouthwash. “We wanted to make the recycling process as effortless as possible, which is why we offer prepaid shipping labels for consumers to easily consolidate and send their used packets back to the company. This new partnership with Terra Cycle allows us to take control of the waste created by our single-use products by simplifying the recycling process for our customers.”
The mouthwash features a refreshing mint flavor without any overpowering sensation, allowing consumers to keep their breath fresh for hours while on the go. Go Mouthwash packets are TSA-approved, making them great for airplane travel, as well as for business trips, camping, or hotel stays. The compact size of the packets allows consumers to conveniently slip them into their pocket, purse, toiletry kit, or carry-on.
