Recycling plastic keeps trash out of landfills and decreases our reliance on polluting fossil fuels—and could earn you reward points or help nonprofit groups.

#5: Get Rewarded for Recycling

One man's recyclable garbage is another man's path to free stuff. Using special ID tags affixed to your recycling bin, Recyclebank tracks how much you're recycling and gives you rewards points that you can use at stores, including Origins, CVS, and Whole Foods. Your municipal recycling program has to work with RecycleBank in order for you to benefit (you can find a list of all the municipalities that Recyclebank currently works with here). If your community is not on the list, try to get it on board. Recyclebank has a form that you can fill out in order to try and convince your municipality to join.
