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. For every item return, TerraCycle donates 2 cents to the school or charity. This company is so amazing!
Review: My children and I were given some really great school products to review. The Capri Sun Rectangular Lunch Box was a well-constructed and large sized lunch bag. My kids have had lunch bags in the past which broke because they were not really large enough to fit their food and drink but that is not the case with this bag. My kids both really loved it and are already fighting over who gets to show it off at school!
The Koolaid Jammers pencil case was also very cool. I loved how three different flavored drink boxes were used to create a very colorful bag. It expanded on the bottom to really allow for a nice amount of supplies which is perfect for my daughter who needs a lot of art supplies for first grade. It is also very well constructed and extremely sturdy. She is pretty rough with her school supplies but I have a feeling that this case will last her all year long.
Finally, the Malt-O-Meal notebook was immediately confiscated by my son who loved the bright orange color and glossy look to the hard covered book. It had wide ruling and lots of pages making it a perfect composition book only better than the ones typically purchased in stores because the cover is much harder and much more difficult to destroy.
I really cannot emphasize enough to the high quality of their products. You may think that products made from garbage would be flimsy, but they are better constructed and more durable than any other similar products I have purchased for my kids in the past. Plus, it is critical that we all do our part to help save the planet and TerraCycle has certainly found a fun and unique way to accomplish this goal. Plus, their products can really help encourage children to recycle.
