There are a lot of eco-friendly companies out there, but no other company is quite like TerraCycle. This company literally takes your garbage and makes practical products such as plant food, backpacks, frames, toys and more! This company pays schools and non-profit organizations for their trash saving 1000's of tons of waste from going to landfills. This company is so amazing!
I have had the pleasure of reviewing their products in the past and was thrilled to be given the opportunity to do so again. This times, I received a YakPak Amped Backpack. The bag is constructed using authentic recycled billboard material. It also serves as a laptop bag and has enough room to accommodate a 15.6" laptop.The bag features adjustable straps and an outer pocket.
The bag is pretty cool, and I like that every bag in unique. The vinyl makes it resistant to wear and tear and it is much easier to clean this backpack than normal ones. I also like that it is water resistant so the contents of the bag will stay safe even in the worst weather conditions. The bag is very reasonably priced at $23.99. Plus, there is a lifetime warranty!
I cannot say enough good things about this company or these products. It is so important that we do our part to help save the planet, and I love it when companies find fun ways to do this. Plus, it gets children excited about recycling! The great products, reasonable price and efforts to save our planet has earned Terracyle my seal of approval!
Gift Giving Guide: This backpack is great for children and adults. Those people on your list who are environmentally-conscious would probably love this thoughtful gift!
