Kids and faculty over at Old Pueblo Children's Academy have taken to recycling all of their used-up Capri Sun pouches through a company called TerraCycle. As of Oct. 21, the students have helped to keep 8,221 pouches out of landfills, and raised $164 for their school.
Nationwide, 50 million drink pouches have been recycled so far. That's the weight of 20 school buses, and the length of 480 football fields.
More than 70,000 schools and groups have signed up to help collect trash for TerraCycle. Any organizations interested in participating can get more info at the TerraCycle website.
Way to go, Old Pueblo Children's Academy! Keep up the good work.
