TerraCycle takes recycling away from the curb and to the next level: upcycling. Their purpose is to eliminate the idea of waste. Can you imagine a world where nothing is wasted, and everything is reused and useful, a full circle? We can only hope that our children see it a reality.
TerraCycle helps us get there by creating national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste. With more than 20 million people collecting waste in 14 countries, TerraCycle has used it to create over 1,500 different products. Fences, cleaners, fertilizer, plant food, bags, clocks, composters, and gardern pavers are just a few of these products. They are available at major retailers - fromWalmart to Whole Foods Market.
I received the ultimate eco-friendly laptop bag. The TerraCycle Denim Laptop Case is made of pieces of scrap denim that otherwise would end up in a landfill. The laptop case is not made from old jeans. but from scraps - maybe True Religion jeans or Juicy Couture jeans or Seven Jeans... I love the look and feel of this laptop bag. It has a padded compartment for my laptop, mesh side pockets for my water bottle, large zippered pockets for books, folders or notebooks. The bag even has an extendable shoulder strap and organizer pockets for pens and pencils, cell phone, business cards - in other words, everything you would expect from a stylish and functional laptop bag. It is now my preferred way to tote around my laptop.
TerraCycle has equally stylish denim laptop sleeves and messenger bags - and you can win one for back to school!
