Win-It Wednesday: TerraCycle Back-To-School Prize Pack!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 18, 2010 · 496 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!


Every year BILLIONS of drink pouches, yogurt containers, candy wrappers and more end up in dumpsters and landfills across America. TerraCycle's mission is to recycle these items into affordable, eco-friendly products. They're making "upcycling" trendy with their adorable backpacks, binders, and lunch boxes!

Want to get paid for your trash? Join one of their FREE Brigades and TerraCycle will pay you per piece for sending them your non-recyclable waste materials.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a TerraCycle Prize Pack that includes the following:

  • Capri Sun lunch box
  • Billboard laptop case
  • Honest Kids 3 ring binder
  • Paper pens
  • (2) Capri Sun pencil cases
  • Capri Sun small tote
  • Doritos backpack
  • Circuit board coasters
  • Circuit board picture frame

To enter, tell me how your family gets environmentally friendly. Do you recycle as much as possible? Have you given up paper towels and instead opted for good old-fashioned cloth?

We recycle as much of our waste as we can. We also buy recycled and reuse what we can. Repurposing is one of my favorite things to do. I try to find new uses for old things.

We shop thrift stores for clothing and donate to thrift stores the clothing that the kids outgrow. We use cloth shopping bags. We recycle and reuse as many items as possible.

My friends call me the recycle queen. I've been known to take recyclables out of their trash can when I'm at their house for a function - it drives me crazy when they throw away something recyclable!

We reuse and recycle just about everything we can. I've started using more cloth rags and less paper towels in the kitchen. And everyone has their own reusuable water bottle that we don't leave home without.
Thanks for the chance to win!

I joined the Terracycle community on Facebook. Cool stuff! Hope I win! We are BIG recyclers in my family. Our town doesn't pick up our recycling, so we have to pack it up and take it ourselves every two weeks. We even take our neighbor's recycling!!!!

We recycle everything we can, we have energy star appliances, we pass on clothes we aren't using anymore (and accept clothes from my sister-in-law for our daughter), we use mostly rags instead of paper towels.... I am sure there is more but I can't think of them right now! :)

We try to reduce the number of single serve items we buy, pack lunches in reusable containers, recycle any items that our curbside program processes, and donate items to charity.
