RecycleToCoin rewards users for their recycling with digital currency or the option to support green initiatives around the world

While recycling is second nature to some, others could use a little encouragement to help keep Earth greener. The new app RecycleToCoin looks to increase recycling in the U.K. by incentivizing users to recycle plastic bottles for cryptocurrency.

Users must download the app, which is available for iOS and Android, and create an account. Then they take their recyclables to the nearest participating shop, where they scan a QR code once they have deposited their lot. From there, they earn tokens that they can turn into gift cards through GiftPay, Bitcoin or Ether, or donate them to Plastic Bank, which helps clean up plastic and pollution worldwide.

The app went live in October and became available to iOS users on February 1. It was developed in association with the Global Plastic Offset Scheme, which funds global plastic recycling projects.
