Terracycle - Sell your Trash? - Giveaway

Would you ever consider SELLING your trash?  


Do you think anyone would ever PAY for it?


What if I told you that I found an amazing company that would?






Terracycle pays schools, families, and communities to collect non-recyclable waste, which is then upcycled or repurposed to make fun, eco-friendly products like shower curtains, potted plants, and soon, baby bibs and diaper bags!  Amazing!





You can send Terracycle your trash - they pay the shipping - donate to charity - and upcycle the trash into cool reusable items!


A Free Fundraiser that YOU can participate in:

* 2 Cents to Charity
           This program pays 2 cents to charity for every used piece of diaper packaging (but not 
           the dirty diapers, please!) or baby food pouch a participant returns.  The programs are 
           funded by Huggies and Sprout organic baby food respectively, but both accept 
           packaging regardless of brand.  

Now, of course, this really doesn't impact those of you who cloth diaper and make homemade baby food - Kudos! You are already changing the world.



The collected diaper packaging and baby food pouches will be turned into products for new mothers and their babies, like bibs and diaper bags, but first we need help collecting enough material.  

Terracyle is trying to recruit daycare centers and young families nationwide to sign up, get involved, and start collecting.  It is an easy way to make a difference globally and locally all while reducing your household waste.  Interested parties can find more information or sign up for free at www.terracycle.net

Their website is full of informative brochures and information to educate the public about waste and its effect on the environment.  Teachers - they even provide a curriculum series!




THE GIVEAWAY

To increase awareness of their upcycled line of products, Terracycle has kindly offered 5 items to go to 5 WINNERS!

The items up for grab are:




  • A tote bag made from juice pouches
  • A pencil case made from juice pouches

I am already a follower of this blog and terracycle on facebook. I already collect juice pouches and send them in.
I love the fact that you make organic cleaners from trash and package them in trash.

Well I already follow Terracycle on Facebook, but I will leave another great thing about them here! They will also recycle their "recycled" products back when you are done with them! Like if your juice bag ever breaks, or your kid smashes the jewelry box you got her made out of a Skittles bag, send it back and they will recycle it too! Just check out the new products they are selling at Toys R' Us! :)

First off, I have no idea how to find a site using Google Friend Connect, can you post the URL up? Second, a sweet thing about Terracycle that's not on this blog - they are based out of Trenton! How I do miss tomato pies!

Did ya know? Terracycle was founded in 2001 by a 19 year old Princeton University freshman named Tom Szaky, TerraCycle started as an organic fertilizer company and has grown into a multi-category, eco-friendly powerhouse!! Way to go, Tom! Love hearing stories of young entrepreneurs!

I visited their website and I learned that the company was founded in 2001 by a 19 year old Princeton University freshman named Tom Szaky when he wanted to find a new, more responsible way of doing business that would be good for the planet, good for people and good for the bottom line!

awesome!!
