Eco-Friendly DwellSmart & TerraCycle Giveaway

Have you heard of TerraCycle before? Do you know what they do?




From their website ~ Every year BILLIONS of drink pouches end up in dumpsters and landfills across America. TerraCycle, Capri Sun and Honest Kids are working together to put an end to this awful loss of resources. As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle converts the drink pouch material into unique fashion bags, tote bags, pencil cases, and other items for kids and adults! TerraCycle is proud to team up with the largest producer of drink pouches in the country, Capri Sun, and a young organic entry into the market, Honest Kids, to help address this problem! Together with your help we CAN make a difference!

Once you have signed up for the Drink Pouch Brigade, you can start collecting drink pouches! When you are ready to ship them, log into your account and chose whether you would like to download prepaid shipping labels (the eco-friendly option) or have TerraCycle mail you 2 prepaid return labels.

The TerraCycle Drink Pouch Brigade™ program allows almost any school, non–profit 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.

Visit their website http://www.terracycle.net/

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!

Introducing...DwellsSmart!

The company started because they wanted to find earth-friendly building materials...they sell bamboo & cork flooring, recycled glass counter tops, VOC free paints and so much more!



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!















AND SO MUCH MORE!!

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!

How would you like to WIN a TerraCyle product that is given to you by Dwellsmart?
How about I put up TWO items to giveaway?

Circuit Board Coasters ~ "These will not compute, but they will protect your furniture and help keep waste out of landfills" Ha!

Clif Bar Messenger Bag ~ made from upcycled Clif Bar Wrappers
