Some time last spring, Viv's Daisy Girl Scout troop started saving Capri Sun wrappers as an effort to save the environment. It's a great project for littler ones. They feel like they are making an impact on their own little piece of the world. And they are. But beyond that, they are helping provide Americans with jobs. Huh?
The scouts sell the wrappers to a company called Terracycle for 2 cents a piece. Terracycle turns them into backpacks, pencils case, shopping bags, lunch boxes and messenger bags and then sells them via Target and other outlets, including Shop Only Green. How cool is that?
