TerraCycle is an excellent fundraising program that non-profit organizations can sign up to participate in.  If your school is interested in participating log onto www.terracycle.net there you will find out how to sign up for the program and how to join the different brigades (items you can collect).  TerraCycle pays out $.02 (a few brigades are higher valued but more difficult to collect) for each piece collected, your non-profit sends in their collected items free of charge!  All they need to do is log into their account and print off a shipping label, tape up the box and take it to their local UPS shipping store!  TerraCycle will send out checks in December and June. 
There are a variety of items that can be collected:
  • CapriSun or similar juice pouches
  • Chip bags with the silver lining-any brand or size
  • Candy wrappers-any brand or size
  • Cell phones
  • Empty Writing Instruments
  • Huggies Diaper packaging
  • Energy Bar Wrappers 
  • and a few more!
Your organization will want to sign up as soon as possible because TerraCycle does limit the number of groups in some brigades sometimes.  Collecting the "garbage" is fun and rewarding!  Not only is your organization earning money but they are helping the environment and teaching our children about saving money, conserving, recycling and reusing!  The organization I am part of has saved over $4,000 juice pouches, over 500 chip bags and over 100 writing instruments from land fills and that is just since November of 2009.  We are ready for another great year of TerraCycling!

TerraCycle turns this "garbage" into usable products like the lunch tote pictured above.  They also make fences, toys, pet items, school supplies, fire logs, gardening items and more!  Check out TerraCycle if you are interested in enrolling your non-profit organization or if you are interested in seeing their great products!
