The TerraCycle Drink Pouch Brigade program allows almost any school, nonprofit organization or individual to save drink pouches from taking up space in landfills. TerraCycle will pay $0.02 per drink pouch to the charity, school or non-profit organization of your choice.

I contacted them to help out during Upcycle Week and they informed me of a great company with both a storefront and an online shop that carries their products. What I found is an AWESOME store that carries TONS of fantastic stuff!! And it’s ALL eco-friendly!
But it doesn’t stop there. You can find anything from cleaning products (did you know there is such thing as a make your own kit?), to pet items (dog beds made from soda bottles), to baby clothes & cloth diapers (check out BabeeGreens.com ~ coming soon to this blog) and school supplies (recycled markers?). If I didn’t have three kids with me I probably could have spent all morning there looking around!
What I love is that their actual store carries many items that are made from local artists. Jewelry, candles, coffee mugs, wine glasses ~ all made from recycled and upcycled materials. I wish you could see it all!
