Recycle plastic bottles for an avian charity?

Have you heard of TerraCycle's Bottle Brigade program? I learned of it this week because of an Orchard Supply Hardware effort to collect 20-oz. plastic bottles with proceeds to benefit the California State Parks Foundation.

The Bottle Brigade program could be a good fundraiser for bird conservation groups, no?

Who can sign up for the Bottle Brigade program?
We welcome anyone from almost any organization to join in our recycling efforts! There are some practical considerations your organizations should keep in mind. For example, our program is not designed to accommodate recycling centers or individual residential households. We currently only collect 20oz. soda bottles with their labels removed.

What do I need to sign up for the Bottle Brigade program?
Signing up for TerraCycle's Bottle Brigade program is easy! All you need is a 501c3 charity (and their Tax ID #) to donate to, and of course, 20oz. soda bottles! We have a list of many noble organizations to donate to if you do not currently have one in mind, including the option to save 10 square feet of rainforest through the Nature Conservancy. You will also need a valid email address and a non-residential address for us to mail boxes to you.

We have just started a new community website called It is a non profit website and if in the future we will make any money we would donate everything to charity.

Regards and best of luck.
