Today I bought a package of cookies with the Terracycle logo on the package. The packaging doesn't tell me much about what exactly that is, so I'm in the process of exploring It looks like they use "trash" as a raw material in the manufacture of new goods. Seems like a neat idea.

Apparently, people sign up to collect particular types of garbage and they drop it off at specified locations or ship it somewhere. I don't know how great of an idea this is, but I guess they're going great if they're making profit...and they must be profiting when they can afford to dole out $1.6M to charity.

They have a website called DwellSmart where you can purchase some of the products they've made out of upcycled trash.
