The Candy Wrapper Brigade

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
I recently discovered this blog post by the folks at the Penn Stater Magazine about recycling unusual things on campus that are then made into interesting items. An organization called Terracycle collects things like those thin, plastic candy wrappers and turns them into little creative items for sale that can be recycled AGAIN when the owner no longer wants it. They also collect water bottles, juice box pouches, coffee bags...and a lot more.

I love this..taking insidious, ever-present junk and making it into something beautiful and functional. The company even has an "Upcycle museum," where they display products made out of recycled materials.
