Why Recyclebank + Greenopolis = More, More, More!

The unprecedented partnership creates the leading online recycling rewards program in America, opening more outlets for recycling and giving consumers more opportunities to earn rewards.

Remember that 70s song, More More More by the Andrea True Connection?   Well, now that Recyclebank and Greenopolis have teamed up, more is exactly what you’re gonna get!  More recycling opportunities, more rewards, more fun for doing the right thing, and most importantly, more trash diverted from landfills, which means more opportunities to be a world without waste.

While you won’t see any immediate changes, because it will take a couple of months to integrate the two leading Recycling Rewards companies in America, the future is a bright one. The partnership will combine the best of both companies, providing consumers and communities with expanded services that encourage an increase in recycling rates by giving real-world rewards for positive action.

Recyclebank’s existing online rewards-for-recycling program is available in more than 300 municipalities across 30 states andthe U.K.  The program boasts about 3 million members, and offers rewards from 3,000 businesses nationwide.

The partnership with Greenopolis will add curb-side recycling as well as on-the-go recycling through conveniently located kiosks.  These are just two of the social recycling systems Greenopolis brings to the mix.

The social recycling component also includes smartphone and tablet apps like RecyclePix, as well as the Facebook game Oceanopolis, which uses social gaming to reward recycling in real life and the virtual world.

So who wouldn’t be excited about getting more?  More real-world rewards, more social recycling interaction, more apps, more games, more places to recycle, more garbage NOT clogging our world––which means more feeling good.  And isn’t that what we all want, just a little more, more, more?

Now, let’s all rock out while we get our recycle on!

About Sebrina Zerkus Smith

Professional writer, foodie. Lupus survivor. Loves pugs, wine, days at the beach and good movies. Takes recycling seriously, but not much else. Sebrina Zerkus Smith is a Southern Gal that has been scratching the writer’s itch for nearly 30 years. Her career began in Washington, D.C., in 1987, fresh out of collage and full of ideals. While plying her trade by day on congressional reps and senators, at night she burned the candle writing features for local newspapers and national magazines. She quickly realized that her southern upbringing gave her a unique and humorous voice that resonated with her readers. Eventually, she moved to Los Angeles where she pursued her dream of becoming a novelist and screenwriter. She paid her bills by working as a freelance writer for major marketing projects from studios such as CBS, NBC and Disney. Realizing that the future of writing lay with the internet, she was bitten by the blogging bug back in the 90’s, back before it was even called “blogging.” Then it was still just writing and trying to make a living. Through those early blogging years, Sebrina found passion and purpose. Over the past 10 years she has written articles for clients such as LightCues.com, MatterMore.com, Greenopolis, MacAddict, Yahoo, CNN and more. Today, Sebrina writes about a variety of topics including the Southern Experience, sustainability, clean water, food, gardening, sleep and her obsession with pugs. She is a regular paid contributor to WildOats.com as well as other entities. She now lives in Houston with her husband Jeff and their pug Newton. She hopes one day to complete her opus, Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed.
