TerraCycle is a company that upcycles and recycles traditionally non-recycable waste (including drink pouches, chip bags and more) into a large variety of consumer products.
I received one of their upcycled backpacks and coolers for review and I was impressed with the quality. These products keep waste out of our landfills and contribute to a cleaner world so I absolutely support their mission.
My favorite thing about the backpack was how cool the design looks like and how it definitively starts up conversations. The perfect way to share their upcycling efforts with friends and family.
Their insulated cooler is great too. It has a removable hard shell liner that is made from waste packaging material. It works just like any other cooler on the market but what I love about this one is that by purchasing one you are supporting TerraCycle’s efforts to minimize waste.
Something interesting about TerraCycle is their Brigade program. They run free recycling fundraisers for schools and community groups across Canada. The schools and other interested organizations earn two cents for every drink pouch, cookie wrapper, snack package, yogurt cups and sandwich bags they collect. I love that they give the extra incentive so more people start recycling and in turn get involved with their program.
Do YOU want to get involved or get your community or school in the program? Be sure to sign up for their free program by visiting: www.terracycle.ca. They just collected their one millionth drink pouch from communities across Canada, donating over 20,000 dollars to school and charities just for recycling. That’s pretty neat isn’t it?
