If you made your kids a lunch today And it's something you do everyday Look on the back of their favorite snack And see how to recycle all those old packs.
Snack, check... drink, check... as you go down the list of your kids' favorite lunch items look on the back of the packaging to see if they participate in the Terracycle recycling program which turns old packaging into new products like school gear.
Terracycle has teamed up with snack powerhouses such as Capri Sun and Mars Chocolates to make a trade with consumers for their old containers and packaging in exchange for some cold hard change.
Set up a special recycling bin in your house for Terracycle items, or encourage your child's class to start one of their own. Take the money collected from recycled pouches to start a vegetable garden, or have a tree planted in their classes' honor.
