TRENTON, N.J., June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SWEDISH FISH(®), the #1 fish
shaped candy brand in the US*, has partnered with international recycling
leader, TerraCycle(®) to offer consumers a free, easy way to recycle their
SWEDISH FISH(®) packaging. In addition to disposing of the brand’s
packaging in an environmentally conscious way, every shipment of SWEDISH
FISH(®) packaging waste sent to TerraCycle earns collectors points that can
be used for charitable gifts or converted to cash and donated to a non-profit,
school or charitable organization of their choice.

“We’re excited to start this partnership with TerraCycle for our SWEDISH
FISH(®) brand. As part of Mondelēz International, we are on a mission to
lead the future of snacking by creating snacks the right way for both people
and planet to love. We’re continuing to make progress and scale our efforts
to deliver meaningful change.” says Mondelēz International Associate
Director Equity Candy, Mili Laddha.

Through the recycling program, consumers can now send in SWEDISH FISH(®)
packaging to be recycled for free. Participation is easy: simply sign up on
the TerraCycle program page www.terracycle.com/en-US/brigades/swedish-fish and
mail in the packaging waste using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected,
the packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to
make new recycled products.
 
 “The SWEDISH FISH(®) brand is giving their consumers the unique
opportunity to responsibly recycle their candy packaging,” said TerraCycle
CEO and Founder, Tom Szaky. “Participants in this recycling program can have
fun and enjoy their favorite sweet treat.”
 
 The SWEDISH FISH(®) Recycling Program is open to any interested individual,
office, or community organization. For more information on TerraCycle’s
