About: “TerraCycle recycles and upcycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it, which is a significantly better solution for waste than traditional methods. We also provide “waste” with a new life, creating usable new products out of items that would have simply been thrown out.”
Why We Love Them: One of the toughest parts of living green is trying to reduce your waste, because so many products are considered non-recyclables. TerraCycle has found a variety of ways to upcycle and give new life to waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill, on our streets, or in our waterways. They offer recycling packages for nearly every type of waste you could think of, with many of them being sponsored by corporations and therefore free to take advantage of!
