What is Gimme 5?
Gimme 5 is a unique recycling program. We launched rolled out the retail collection program in 2009, in collaboration with a number of brand partners. We also work with Whole Foods Market and natural food coops to offer a #5 plastic polypropylene (PP) recycling option in their stores. Presently, Preserve Gimme 5 collection bins are located in more than 250 Whole Foods Market stores across the U.S. as well as in select independent cooperative markets. The best part? Those recycled yogurt cups and other #5s collected through Gimme 5 are then transformed into Preserve toothbrushes and razors, giving them a fantastic new life.
