Terra Cycle is a company that collects your used cookie wrappers, drink pouches, yogurt cups, wine corks, and energy bar wrappers and will pay 2¢ for each one. They donate the money to the school or charity of your choice! Not only that, but they send the shipping boxes right to your door. After you are done collecting the requested amount, you send them off, free of charge. They make tons of recycled merchandise including cool shopping bags, purses, binders, crayons, and more. Check out the site at: http://www.terracycle.net/ and feel good about your used wrappers REALLY being recycled and not going into our landfills.
Little Sprouts plans to head up a recycle drive in the near future to collect these wrappers and pass the money on to a Hawaii children’s charity. Please check out the Terra Cycle website for accepted wrappers and feel free to drop them off at the store. Mahalo!
