Recyclebank reroutes travelers onto a greener path via @triplepundit

RecycleBank is an online service that works with sponsors to create programs that reward green behavior, through a point system that can be redeemed for products from participating companies. It’s a way of connecting and motivating people who want to be greener, with companies that want to do something positive for the planet, turning green actions into rewards. They currently have over three million members and have been leveraging that online community with more online, and now mobile, applications. They started by working with municipalities to improve recycling rates. Now, they also provide information online, through their Learn and Earn program, giving points for reading educational material and taking quizzes, upcycling products, selling or donating used items rather than putting them into the trash, and so on.
