One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure

Green How To:
This company is an absolutely incredible "recycle how to" website. They have definitely grown significantly in the past few years, but after suggesting that my girlfriend use them, and she replied with "Who?", I decided that I would love to present them.

Welcome Terracycle, a company with a hope is to eliminate the idea of waste by finding innovative, unique uses for materials others deem garbage. So here is the just of what these guys do. You send them old trash, things like cookie wrappers, drink pouches, chip bags, etc. after you have already eaten the goods. THEY PAY YOU for sending them your trash. Once they receive your trash they recycle in the most incredible ways. They will actually assemble handbags, backpacks, cleaning products, etc. out of the trash you send them. After they transform your old waste, they resell the novelties in stores such as Target, Wal Mart, etc.

These guys really have set a new standard for recycling and defined what being green truly is all about. I love what they do and what they stand for.
