Green Teams Doing Terracycle

Green Teams! If you haven't already heard, there's a new, fun way to recycle products you've never been able to recycle before. It's called Terracycle! Terracycle is a company with a goal “to help eliminate the idea of waste." It works by establishing new waste collection programs they call "Brigades." Brigades are teams of people -- friends, co-workers, families, etc. -- that are registered with Terracycle to focus on and round up certain kinds of non-recyclable waste that the company can convert into new products. They can turn Capri-Sun juice pouches into shoulder bags or circuitboards into clipboards and everything in between.

From their website: TerraCycle upcycles and recycles traditionally non-recycable waste (including drink pouches, chip bags, tooth brushes and many more) into a large variety of consumer products. These products keep waste out of our landfills and contribute to a cleaner world.TerraCycle products are available at a wide range of major retailers from Wal*Mart to Target as well as online. They are eliminating waste in the landfill and make really neat products! Win-Win situation!

Church camp goes beyond the music

Since so much emphasis is placed on recycling at this year’s camp, the church found a program called TerraCycle to help. According to its website, the purpose of TerraCycle is to “eliminate the idea of waste by creating collection and solution systems for anything that ends up in our trash today.” During the camp, children will collect old toothbrushes, Capri Sun packages, old ink pens, and chip bags and give them to Greenway Medical, which has an established program. Greenway will then give the items to TerraCycle which will then write a check back to a nonprofit organization of their choice.
