TerraCycle made a name for themselves producing a line of plant fertilizer products that were organically made by worms and sold in recycled soda bottles. Not content to watch lots of other potentially reusable materials head to the landfill, the company is expanding operations to produce a line of cleaning products, supplies for school and the office, and yes even fashion accessories. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the company has inked deals with a number of companies to collect some of their packaging waste and ‘upcycle' it into new products. The company is already offering these products for sale at Target and hopes to be shipping to Walmart and Home Depot soon.
