The holidays are almost here! Who knew we could recycle the plastic containers for transparent tape?

TerraCycle, the company that makes things out of juice pouches has launched a new partnership with
Scotch Brand transparent tape, to recover and reuse clear plastic tape dispensers and cores.

The test program will begin later this year and will involve the collection of more than 25,000 dispensers through 1,000 TerraCycle collection programs, called "Brigades." The Scotch Tape Brigades will collect empty clear plastic tape dispensers and cores and pay two cents per dispenser to a charity of the collector's choice. The Scotch Brand will then take the items and reuse them for their original purpose.

Terracycle collects a number of items in addition to juice pouches, check out the website to join a brigade.
