This weeks Green Hero is an organization. TerraCycle is a recycling innovation company unique in its kind. In a nutshell: they want your trash. They do a variety different things with trash. One project being the Zero Waste Box in which they’ll send you a box, you fill it with trash and send it (at no extra cost) back to TerraCycle and they’ll reuse the materials.
TerraCycle repurposes difficult-to-recycle materials. And they make it extremely easy. You sign up for the welcome package in which you’ll learn about which materials you can recycle; varying from aluminum cans to batteries to sports balls, and many more.
Choose your box, fill it up and send it off.
There’s also a rewards program. And nifty DIY design project section where you learn how to refurbish waste.
