Founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky, then a 20-year-old Princeton University freshman, TerraCycle, Inc. began producing organic fertilizer by packaging liquified “worm poop” in used soda bottles. Since the inauspicious start, TerraCycle has become one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world.
More than just a recycling company, TerraCycle strives to be a driving force behind increasing environmental awareness and action. Our goal is to be a trusted resource for families, schools, communities, and even corporations to find tips, stats, facts, tactics, and news to help them live a greener, cleaner lifestyle. Together, we are Eliminating the Idea of Waste®.
Today, TerraCycle is a highly-awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. TerraCycle is widely considered the world’s leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable, post-consumer waste.
TerraCycle works with more than 100 major brands in the U.S. and 22 countries overseas to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills. It repurposes that waste into new, innovative materials and products that are available online and through major retailers.

I love to make new things out of old things. Some call it recycling or upcycling. I just call it being creative. I was excited to receive this unique bracelet. How cool is it to have a bracelet from an old tent?
It was very comfortable to wear this bracelet and I received a lot of compliments on it.. This is a perfect gift for perhaps someone that is a camper since it’s made from a tent.
It’s holiday gift buying time. I’m sure you can find something for at least a few on your list on Terracycle. I feel it’s important to help keep items out of landfills as much as we can.
