I was scouting Target this morning for the last few items on my son's Pre-K supply list when something caught my eye. A pencil case made of a recycled chip bag at the mere price of $1.00.
How cute, how quirky, how smart. How ECO-CHIC!
Frito-Lay has partnered up with TerraCycle to create cool bags that minimized waste and are made thru the collective effort, literally of schools and organizations that collect chip bags and get paid for doing it. Imagine making money for your organization by collecting everyday lunch items that will wind up in a landfill someplace, making money for doing it and then seeing what you've collected on a store shelf near you.
What a great way to teach kids how to recycle and have the opportunity to see an end product from their efforts!
