NEW YORK and ORLANDO, April 29, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Recyclebank®, ( the company that inspires and rewards smarter, everyday choices for a more sustainable future, was recognized with a Bronze Award in the “Best Loyalty or Rewards Program” category from Loyalty360—the Loyalty Marketers’ Association—during the 8th Annual Loyalty Expo in Orlando on Monday, April 27, 2015.

Recyclebank received the award for its unique approach to driving positive behavior change. Recyclebank’s core program works by encouraging green environmental practices through such strategies as education, content delivery, selling sustainable products, partnering with municipalities to drive recycling efforts and rewarding members with points for green activities—which can be used for discounts and products.

“As a behavior change platform, our approach has always been about providing valuable and personally relevant rewards to our members for the positive actions they do, whether it is household recycling or pledging to do other green actions,” said Javier Flaim, Chief Executive Officer of Recyclebank. “What we have found that really elevates the relationship with our members from being primarily a transactional one to becoming a true brand and sustainability advocate is how we help them understand what impact their positive actions have on the broader environment.”
