We have become a nation of consumers. We buy stuff, throw away the packaging that all of our stuff comes in and REPEAT. We are literally running out of landfills. In order to save our Earth we have to decrease our carbon footprint. Recycling the packaging from all of our stuff is a great way to start.
Terracycle is the world’s leader in upcycling and recycling previously non-recyclable post-consumer waste that would otherwise be destined for landfills.Terracycle has a complete line of affordable innovative products that were re-purposed from used packaging and products.
I received this large roomy Dorito Messenger Bag made from pre-consumer waste from the Doritos X-13D packaging material and comes with an adjustable strap.
I enjoy carrying it when I visit my local farmers market, The Eastern Market in Detroit. It has lots of room, is sturdy, considering it’s previous life and I get tons of comments and questions every time I carry it.
Who knew “upcycle” was the new fashion statement.
