BES is now a TerraCycle Brigade participant which means we are collecting specific non-recyclable packaging as a way to raise money. This free collection program educates children about reusing, provides a much needed boost in funding for us and most importantly, saves tons of garbage from ending up in a landfill.
You can help by having your child bring in EMPTY drink pouches such as Capri Sun and Honest Kids. We will send them to TerraCycle and, in return, receive $.02 per drink pouch. You can even track our school's collection efforts through www.terracycle.net.
An eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle will upcycle the materials we collect into cool, new, eco-friendly and affordable products such as tote bags, pencil cases, kites, shower curtains, and backpacks that are available nationwide at Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot, Office Max, and Sam's Club. Since the products are made directly from used packaging of recognizable brands, children are able to quickly understand the impact of their efforts.
