You can collect Frito Lay chip bags, keep them out of landfills and send them to be remade into something useful all while earning money for your school or nonprofit organization.
TerraCycle has teamed up with Frito Lay to collect used packaging from FritoLay snack products- Doritos, Cheetos, Tostidos and other chip bags and turn them into affordable upcycled products- folders, tote bags, purses and pencil cases.
You can sign up to join the Chip Bag Brigade at TerraCycle.net. TerraCycle will send you everything you need. All you need to do is designate a non-profit organization or school to receive the money from the bags collected.
This is a great project to get your local schools involved in. Kids love snacks, they love chips, and I bet most households buy some Frito Lay products. Instead of throwing the bags away they can be collected and TerraCycle will turn them into something new and your school can earn $.02 per accepted bag.
