UPCYCLE and Terracycle school programs "Upcycling is something we can do to help the planet become more sustainable by reusing unwanted items by turning them into new products.  This in turn means we can reduce the use of raw materials and the energy used in the manufacturing of raw materials."
 This is another of my recycle/upcycle wall pod made from nylon bag

One night watching TV  I learned about the New Jersey firm " TerraCycle"  making quality consumer products from waste. 
"... repurposes waste packaging from Mars Inc,Kraft, Frito Lay, Wrigley's and many others operations into products ranging from cell phone holders and laptop sleeves to messenger bags, significantly reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills"

Check their recycle school  program
