Wrapper Trapper

get more from BRO

Instead of throwing that CLIF BAR wrapper away, why not turn it into a backpack? The maker of organic energy bars has teamed with TerraCycle to create the Wrapper Brigade, a nation-wide recycling program that collects used CLIF BAR wrappers and weaves them into a strong material which will then be used to make backpacks.

The program aims to cut down on the millions of energy bar wrappers that end up in landfills every year. Individuals can sign up for the Wrapper Brigade through TerraCycle and receive four collection bags that hold 200 energy bar wrappers each. Fill up the bag and send it back free of cost. What’s more, CLIF BAR will donate two cents to charity for every used wrapper collected.
