TerraCycle – send them trash, they make products, we all profit

TerraCycle has a cool idea. We send them our trash, and they make it into stuff that can be resold and used.  Bags, picture frames, clocks, odour removers…there’s a growing range of stuff to choose from. So far they’ve generated over $1 million for charity and recycled over a billion ‘units’ of waste, which sounds very fine, n’est pa?

 TerraCycle makes affordable, eco-friendly products from a wide range of different non-recyclable waste materials. With over 50 products available at major retailers like Walmart, Target, The Home Depot, OfficeMax, Petco and Whole Foods Market, TerraCycle is one of the fastest growing eco-friendly manufacturers in the world. Our hope is to eliminate the idea of waste by finding innovative, unique uses for materials others deem garbage.
