"Every year over 30 billion kids drink containers are thrown out in North America. A large portion of these containers are juice pouches, which are non-recyclable and are not biodegradable. In an effort to eliminate the idea of waste TerraCycle and Honest Tea wanted to find a solution to reuse as many of these juice pouches as possible. The TerraCycle team was inspired by an effort that was underway in the Philippines by the Peoples Recovery Empowerment and Development Assistance Foundation (PREDA). Drink pouches in the Philippines, as in North America, are an environmental issue and litter the streets." -
