Green Tip Tuesday - Terrecycle

Are you passionate about RECYCLING? Have you heard about TERRACYCLE?

I'm sure you've seen those cool pencil pouches made out of caprisun packages or the folders made out of other types of well-known brands. Well, these products are made possible by "YOU" and by a company called TERRACYCLE. All you got to do is sign up, choose a Brigade and you can start collecting "TRASH" right away. I myself collect both Capri-sun packets as well as OREO cookie packages. Now, when you have reached a certain number (usually 100) you ask for a prepaid label and you send it in. Then they are cleaned and made into useful items. It's good to know that your trash will be recycled. How do you know? Well, read the following. I received this from Terrecycle last week:

Thank you for your hard work and determination in helping us eliminate the idea of waste! Together we have kept over 1.2 BILLION pieces of trash from going into the landfills and over $750,000 has been paid to schools and charities nationwide. We couldn’t have done it without your help!

Now, for a limited time only between April 5th and April 29th, the largest selection of TerraCycle products ever will be available in every Walmart store across the country. Each “Earth Zone” display will feature over 60 TerraCycle products, including a lot of brand new, never before seen items, and the best part is all of the TerraCycle products are being sold right next to the original items they were made from. So, tote bags made from Frito-Lay waste packaging will be sold with bags of Frito-Lay chips and backpacks made from Capri Sun drink pouches will be sold next to cartons of the popular drink pouch! This creates a great opportunity for you to see all of your collection efforts come to life in the form of the products you and your team have helped to build. Below is a glimpse of products that will be available at your neighborhood WalMart.

We really NEED your help to make this opportunity with Walmart a success and by visiting your local Walmart between April 5th and April 29th. You can also help us by sharing this information with your friends, family, and team members. We have created a flyer and letter you can hand out to everyone in your Brigade and you can download it from our website: Click Here. We also have created a letter to send out as well, please click here to view and print the letter

We can't thank you enough for your continued help and support. Without the help of people like you, TerraCycle would not exist! Thank you for your support!

The TerraCycle Team

Now what are you waiting for. Contact your child's teacher or you co-workers (anyone really) and pick a brigade and get to collecting. At the end of the year I say ya'll get together and then buy some products to give as gifts or to use the following year. I love to see when recycling pays off, don't you?

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
