TerraCycle’s goal is to help eliminate the idea of waste by taking what is usually considered as non-recylable items into recyclable. How do they do this you ask?
Well they have different materials that qualify for their program and they divide them up into categories (such as chip bags, coffee bags, cellphones, drink pouches, etc.) These categories are referred to as “Brigades.” These brigade programs offer free shipping as well as a donation to a charity of your choice for each piece you collect and send in. The packaging waste is then turned into a cool new reusable product. Example: Capri Sun Juice Pouches turned into a bag!! They even have old billboard sign materials reused into these awesome one of a kind YakPaks!
So lets make those “non-recylcables” into something reusable!!
