TerraCycle’s purpose is to eliminate the idea of waste. We do this by creating national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste. Anyone can sign up for these programs, called the Brigades, and start sending us waste.
TerraCycle then converts the collected waste into a wide variety of products and materials. With more than 20 million people collecting waste in 14 countries TerraCycle has diverted billions of units of waste and used them to create over 1,500 different products available at major retailers ranging fromWalmart to Whole Foods Market.
TerraCycle makes a large variety of both trendy and utilitarian products. As I looked through their products I was very impressed to see that the prices were not only “reasonable”, the prices were, what I would consider, very low.
They have trendy upcycled bags made from candy wrappers and drink pouches that make perfect back to school items….
