Terracycle – Sponsor Highlight


I can’t get enough Terracycle! It has nothing to do with the fact they they sponsored my very first giveaway. I love the fact the take trash and turn it into products!

I signed up with Terracyle 2 years ago and starting collecting and collecting. I tried to get my son’s school involved and even put a story in the local paper. The school wasn’t ready and they missed out a great oppurtuniy. I do have to say- they started collecting the following year., so that’s good.

Terracycle collects a lot of different products like, chip bags, cookies bags, candy wrappers, yogurt containers and the most popular – juice pouches.  The consumer – you and I actually collect the trash and mail it to Terracycle and Terracycle pays for shipping! Then they sort and clean the trash and make something new. Like backpacks, notebooks, garbage cans and more. Terracycle then gives your local school or favorite charity $$ for every itme collected.

How cool is that! Get money for trash!


Terracycle sent me a backpack and notebook and pencil case to giveaaway during my Back to School the Eco-Way Giveaway Blog Hop!
