TerraCycle Description:

Help reduce landfill wastes in a fun way! Each year, billions of used drink pouches, chip bags and candy wrappers fill dumpsters and landfills across the United States and are unable to be recycled. TerraCycle is an industrial waste management company that has launched a campaign to collect these used juice pouches and remake them into new products – a process called ‘upcycling.’

As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle converts the used drink pouches into stylish backpacks, lunchboxes, tote bags, pencil cases, and other items for kids and adults. In addition, $0.02 is donated to charity for every drink pouch collected through TerraCycle’s Drink Pouch Brigade.

Environmentally friendly products are no longer drab and boring. You can purchase excellent quality items that look just as cool as the rest of the back to school items sold at every store this time of year. You and your child have a chance to positively impact the impressionable individuals your children interact with everyday!

The used chip bags are washed and sanitized before the product is sewn to ensure the cleanliness of this product.
