Great Tip on Recycling from Reader

I just got a great tip from a reader that I wanted to share with everyone. Thanks Stephanie, keep them coming.

This might need to go to your recycle post, but my friend Paige sends wine corks, Frito-Lay chip bags and several other items to a company called Tera Cycle. They take items that we consider trash and remake them into useful items. One example is they turn Capri Sun drink pouches into purses and book bags.The cool thing is that Tera Cycle pays for these items to be shipped to them as well as paid Non-Profits and schools for the items, its not much, but with the small budget that the Non-profits and schools have every little bit helps.

This sounds great and with no cost to you, why wouldn't you at least try to recycle this way? I know that Frito now uses biodegradable bag material on a lot of their bags but you could still keep them out of the landfill for a while and get a totally different use out of them in the meantime.
