You Want Me to Shave My Legs with a Yogurt Cup? March 20, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Eco/Green.
No, I haven’t lost my marbles. You heard me right. A yogurt cup. A Massachusetts-based company called Recycline is making it possible with their line of Preserve™ products. They have partnered with Stonyfield Farm to take yogurt cups (returned to the company by consumers for recycling) and turn them into toothbrushes and razors. Not only do you get a product that utilizes recycled materials, Recycline also provides you with a postage-paid mailer so that you can return your product for recycling if your community doesn’t accept #5 plastics. For those products that are returned to Recycline, they are then recycled for a third time into plastic lumber “which is used to make picnic tables, decks, boardwalks and other durable products.” Pretty cool, huh? I love innovative green ideas!
