Have you heard of TerraCycle? They make environmentally friendly and affordable products, made from non-recyclable waste materials. They have over 50 products that sell at retailers such as Walmart, Target and Petco. TerraCycle products range from fertilizers to household cleaners to backpacks and toys. Their goal is to find unique uses for items that would go into landfills, and eliminate the idea of waste.

TerraCycle also has a national program called TerraCycle Brigades. This program allows you to earn cash for trash (money paid to schools and non-profits). You may choose which "Brigade" you want to join to begin collecting. Some of the Brigades include: Drink Pouch, Aveeno Beauty, Chip Bag, Writing Instruments and Cell Phone. Payout ranges from $.02 per item to $0.25 per item for cell phones.

WIN IT!

Following Bargain Mom and the product I'd like to try is the Capri Sun tote. It looks like the perfect size to throw some items in for a day when I'm out and about.

We are starting a Terracycle program at our school and could use an example of what the juice bags are made into. This is such a wonderful idea
