“Help reduce landfill wastes in a fun and fashionable way! Each year, billions of used drink pouches fill dumpsters and landfills across the United States and are unable to be recycled. TerraCycle is an industrial waste management company that has launched a campaign to collect these used juice pouches and remake them into new products – a process called ‘upcycling.’

This upcycled bag is created using waste drink pouches that can’t be recycled.  I have seen many bags like this before and actually bought a wallet created from this material which i gave to a friend for her birthday. I love the idea of re-using and re-creating something.

Another worth buying is this Prang Soybean blend Biodegradable crayons that is safe and non toxic is a great alternative from popular crayons that are made from conventional petroleum based paraffin wax crayons.

Glue stick is the most used school supplies in my kid’s things.  And this Coccoina non toxic glue stick is a great alternative.  Honestly, i never heard of this before since we have been using a very popular brand which i would no longer mention.  This non toxic glue stick is safe from the environment and far more important, it’s safe for your kids and did you know that it has a sweet almond scent too which is very tempting to eat.

And last but not the least, this multi purpose banana paper from Eco Paper is definitely a great catch.  For printing projects and even for school and office needs, this recycled bond paper is indeed something worth having.
