TerraCycle a New Start to School



AHHH it's already August! That means summer is over and kids are back in school! Now the money spending starts, you have school supplies which now seem to cattier to the whole class, clothes, uniforms, shoes and backpacks.

TerraCycle is a very cool way to help the environment not only can you purchase things like pencil cases, binders and backpacks you can even send your "waste" to be recycled into something you later might purchase!


School is back which means more small bags of chips which means more waste but what if you started collecting those bags which could be turned into your most favorite backpack ever! This year make a box which could be placed in the garage or kitchen write on it bags of chips. Now every bag of chips you eat once you have finished lay it flat in your recycle box. After you have collected all your bags click here (you will have to make a account), and get a shipping label which is sent to TerraCycle. Next thing you know you will see your chip bags marketed as a backpack, pencil case and more! You can purchase recycled school supplies by clicking here. I love that each backpack is unique so my kids always know that is there backpack.

TerraCycle not only helps the environment by recycling waste it also makes eco-friendly products to clean the home. I was able to test out TerraCycle Bathroom Cleaner which I was in shock of how well it worked. I love that it did not have a harsh odor so I was able to really scrub and not have to take breaks to breath as most harmful chemicals make it hard to do. TerraCycle has a long line of cleaners they even have repellents to keep animals such as deer out of your yard, without harming the deer or the human.
