I'm pretty excited... TerraCycle posted a link to my tip about the Target Retote promotion on their website! I know it is just one of many, but I thought it was pretty cool. For those of you unfamiliar with TerraCycle, you really should check out their website. The work that they are doing really is amazing and so ingenious. There are many different areas that they are working to help the environment, but the ones you may have already seen involve items you probably have in your home right now.

Juice pouches, snack wrappers, corks and more are collected, sent to TerraCycle and then made into some pretty cool things like tote bags, pencil pouches, backpacks, corkboards and more.

Check out these bags- talk about an awesome gift idea for kids. If you hover your cursor over the pictures on their site, you can see what goes into making each one. Amazing! Think of all of the garbage they are reducing/ recycling with their efforts...

TerraCycle earns my FLM stamp of approval. Not only are they bringing reduce, reuse, recycle to a new level, they also have programs where non-profits organization can earn money for their cause while helping collect the items used by TerraCycle in their efforts. Keep up the good work!
