The North Face Partners with Terracycle to Reduce Landfill Waste - Never Stop Exploring


Today The North Face is excited to announce that they have partnered with upcycling and recycling pioneer TerraCycle® to create The North Face Polybag Brigade®. Through the partnership they are diverting 100% of the polybag packaging waste at the 20 The North Face retail stores in the U.S. where #4 plastic bags are not readily recyclable. 


Eliminating waste at all stages of the product lifecycle is a key component of The North Face comprehensive sustainability program. Through The North Face Polybag Brigade, The North Face and TerraCycle are actively pursuing a solution to a common packaging waste problem in the apparel industry.  TerraCycle will repurpose the bags into various products such as plastic lumber, bike racks, pavers, kitchen utensils and plastic tote bags for re-use.
