pretty much every day I eat one or two Cliff Builders bars, a nutrious meal alternate that keeps me powered through the day of green design. I have been keeping the wrappers from these bars for ages as I can't stand the idea of them being plowed into a landfill somewhere. Now, thanks to Terracycle, I have a place to send them. These smart people have developed a host of products made from the wrappers and packaging of a number of products: its reuse and second life in action! they even have the collection and shipping figured out through their "brigades" of collection sites. best of all each of my wrappers generates two cents that gets donated through Terracycle to schoolds and non-profits.
So next time you consume: unconsume the package by checking out Terracycle and getting the package back into use!
