FILTER Good Gift Guide, Day 12: TerraCycle Gifts
By Clare R. Lopez on December 21, 2010
’Tis the holiday season and here at FILTER we believe in giving gifts that keep on giving. So in the spirit of the holidays, throughout December we’ll be posting our Good Gift Guide ideas for your picky loved ones.
The saying goes that it’s greater to give than it is to receive. So what if you could give in more ways than one? The TerraCycle manufacturing company is making that possible this holiday season with gifts that are also good for the environment. Dedicated to using non-recyclables to create new items, or “upcycling,” their speakers and vinyl picture frames are perfect for the eco-enthusiast. Made from M&M’s, Starburst and Skittles candy wrappers, the speakers run on the power supply of your iPod or MP3 player, available here for $13.99. Their vinyl picture frames are—you guessed it—made out of old records, available here for $12.99. While they may not live to spin another day, at least they can still look impressive.
