And this is why I'm very passionate about ensuring that NOT only my kid's but every kids' future is hazard-free, green and livable as well. And the only way I can help make this possible is to lay the foundation now by finding ways to protect Mother Earth for them, in every little ways I can! You know what they say, EVERY LITTLE THING COUNTS! Thankfully, Terracycle Inc. share the same vision. This is why I decided to sign up as a Terracycle Brigade for Kashi , Cliff Bars and currently on wait list for Stoneyfield Farms Yogurt .
These products are just a few of those consumed daily in my household and though they're subject to your usual recycling, courtesy of the City's local trash collector, Terracycle offered a better alternative by partnering with these companies and contributing $0.02 per package collected which will be paid to the school or nonprofit of your choice. The collected materials will then be upcycled by Terracycle into new eco-friendly, affordable products AND most of all, away from landfills!
Terracycle has also eliminated the hassle of shipping the collected items back to them by providing prepaid shipping labels and bags via UPS. I received mine today and I'm ready to stuff it!
Now this is one cool way to recycle! Not only does it help our environment, it also helps your organization in return and help Terracycle provide better products out in the market. Definitely a win-win situation. My daughter will start school soon, so her school will get the donations. To be a part of this new innovation in recycling, you can sign up at Terracycle and sign up for the products that you commonly consume in your household. I dare you to be a Trash Warrior today - to help Save our Planet one Garbage at a time - for a better world for your kids and mine...
YES YOU CAN DO THIS!
I practice what I preach: Some of my daughters' items as she starts school this fall. Pencil Case by O.P.P (Other People's Plastic), Ticonderoga's Enviro Sticks Pencil and Terracycles' Chip bag Pencil case - made from Sun Chips bag. And oh before I forget, FTC this is not sponsored nor a paid post - though I wish it was - just so it's clear, you know.
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me..."
-Heal the world by Michael Jackson
Ready to take the Challenge? And yes you can call me GREEN NUTS or TRASH LADY after this. I'm proud of it and I take it seriously.
