Do you think anyone would ever PAY for it?
What if I told you that I found an amazing company that would?
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
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!
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
- A lunch box from juice pouches
- A drink coaster made from circuit boards
- A picture frame made form circuit board
The items will be randomly sent to the winners by Terracycle.
