TerraCycle's purpose is to eliminate the idea of waste. They do this by creating national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste. Anyone can sign up for these programs, called the Brigades, and start sending them waste.
TerraCycle then upcycles the collected waste into a wide variety of products and materials. With more than 20 million people collecting waste in 14 countries TerraCycle has diverted billions of units of waste and used them to create over 1,500 different products available at major retailers ranging from WalMart to Whole Foods Market and online at http://www.dwellsmart.com
Noble PTA is an active partner of TerraCycle and has multiple brigades for “TerraCycling.” We have made about $2,000 from our TerraCycle” Cash for Trash Campaign” and recycled over 78,000 pieces of trash! How cool is that??
We collect recyclables all year long in the office or in the designated bins located throughout the school. This program not only benefits the school by providing funds, but also teaches our children the value of preserving our planets natural resources. It’s cool to be green!!! Click on our TerraCycle Chart to see all the “out of the box” items that we recycle.
We were even featured in the Berryessa Sun news!
We are always looking for environmentalists to help sort items and get them ready to ship out! Even scouts can participate for badges!
Let’s work together and continue to keep our school “green!”
