Everything you'll need to know about the REPREVE Recycle Rally
How Can I Get My School Involved?
Make sure you enter your school for the correct tier, because prizes are given depending on how many students attend each school. Once you register and start submitting the number of recycled bottles you cannot change your school's submission details.
How Do I Get Started?
First, set up recycling receptacles around your school. Make sure there are plenty of recycling containers in popular areas around the grounds (cafeteria, locker rooms, library, etc). Make signs to direct students and faculty to the containers and spread the word! Once you start collecting bottles, tally them up, submit the total number of plastic bottles via SMS, and send them off to your local recycling center.
How Do I Submit The Number Of Bottles?
Submit the number of bottles you collect via text message (SMS) to +14025194249. Be sure to include your school name in the message. We will reply back asking you to confirm. Once you confirm with “YES” your numbers are automatically recorded! We recommend you submit often – weekly or even daily – to get the most accurate count.
What Types of Bottles Can Be Recycled?
Any size plastic soda, water, or juice bottle may be recycled. You may not recycle glass or metal cans for this challenge, but we encourage you to recycle them on your own!
When Are The Winners Announced?
The winning schools will be notified three weeks before Marvel Universe LIVE! will be in your city. For a list of tour dates, visit Marvel Universe LIVE!
Looking for some recycling tips?
We can all do more! Every bottle that gets turned into REPREVE and made into a fleece jacket or a pair of khakis means a little less petroleum wasted. And a little less pollution. Here are a few tips on how you can improve recycling rates in your communities.
Place receptacles all over your school, especially in high traffic areas like the cafeteria and gym. Make sure the containers are large enough to hold plenty of bottles.
Spread the word and let everyone know you want your school to win tickets to Marvel Universe LIVE! Tell family members and neighbors to save their plastic bottles so you can pick them up and bring them to your school!
Use Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to share pictures of your recycling containers and show everyone your school's progress! The more you share, the more bottles you'll recycle!
Submit your plastic bottle numbers often to get the most accurate count and watch your numbers grow!
