Recycling Beyond the Blue Box


Learn how Cheryl Bertou and her son were able to partner with TerraCycle, an innovative company focused on reducing waste through the recycling of previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste, to raise funds for a school building project in South Sudan. They have been collecting items that are typically thrown away for two years and they continue to partner with others in the community to recycle even more.
