The hundred-and-twenty-second and hundred-and-twenty-third days combined...

Sunday, July 26, 2009
How is the weekend going for everyone? Mine is going okay. I didn't get to do laundry, which means that I'll just have that much more laundry to do next week; but I might get my hair done today so that's a good thing.

Yesterday, I stopped in Target to pick up a few things. While there Sis 2 and I spotted these.

At first, I was disgusted as I thought that someone had left their trash on the shelf (it wouldn't be the first time) - but then we looked closer. This wasn't trash - they were pencil cases made of recycled drink pouches and chip bags (made by Terracycle, Inc). I, of course, understand the need for recycling, but I'm not a fan of these. Even just touching them to position them for this picture felt weird. Sis 2 wasn't a fan either. But, then again, we aren't really the target audience for the cases. There were some kids running around that seemed to really get a kick out of them.

Has anyone seen these before (or any other Terracycle products)?

Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!



Haha never seen those before. That's interesting. I'm not really a fan of them either, though like you said, I don't think I'm the exact target audience for them lol.

But if they can successfully get little kids to buy this stuff, well then I'm all for the cause. Less waste.


I have never seen those before, but I know you can buy belts and stuff made from capri sun packages on Ebay.

for the love of pictures

Hey Lee :) That's true. Less waste is always a positive thing.

Hey Jeanette :) I didn't know about the belts and other stuff either. Wow, one person's trash is becoming another person's treasure all over the place :)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I've never heard of those. I don't have a problem with them recycling them, but perhaps I'd be more okay with consuming them out of a recycled pouch if I didn't know it was recycled.

Hey Badass :) These were just pencil cases, but I never thought of that. I love Capri Sun, so I'm hoping the company isn't using recycled pouches for the drinks. Seriously, those drinks taste like candy - yes, I'm a grown up :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
