  • Instructor REI & Subaru

We're committed to reducing the waste that ends up in local landfills. Come help REI and Subaru divert hard-to-recycle waste from local landfills by bringing your snack wrappers, old yoga mats, yoga blocks, bike tubes, bike tires, bike grips, tents, climbing harnesses and reusable water bottles to REI this weekend. These items will be transformed into useful products by Subaru's partner TerraCycle. In appreciation, participants can receive a gift, while supplies last. Can't make it to the event? You can still bring your snack wrappers to any REI nationwide to be recycled by Subaru. REI, in partnership with Subaru and its participating retailers nationwide, are helping divert waste from landfills and transforming your waste into picnic tables, benches, and playground equipment. So far, Subaru has helped collect over 2 million pieces of hard-to-recycle waste. To learn more, visit Together, let's Opt to Act.
