TRASHeBAGS

trashebags-footer-logoLooking for a place to recycle or upcycle all our used coffee bags, I found this site called TRASHeBAGS.I was really excited to read more about this small company that is located in one of my favorite states Colorado as well as :

  • Employs people in the USA
  • Provides occupations for disabled individuals
  • Raises household awareness of upcycle opportunities
  • Makes products from 90% repurposed items. Yes, upcycles trash.

They are looking for items you can donate as individuals as well as looking to schools or scout troops – maybe a LIBRARY? –  to organize a collection.  They have some partners already.  You can read more about them and their plans for the future.  Follow their blog for resources, info and updates too.

Of course you can also check out their  store where you can buy all sorts of cool bags, purses, wallets etc.

(PS TerraCycle is another great place for recycling, er “eliminating the idea of waste” but they are not collecting coffee bags now unfortunately)
