Candy wrappers = money for schools and non-profits

Candy Wrapper Brigade

www.terracycle.net via care2.com

Don't throw your wrappers away! Join the TerraCycle Candy Wrapper Brigade and send in wrappers from Mars/Wrigley and Cadbury candies (they cover the postage). Not only do they "upcycle" the wrappers into usable products, for every wrapper you send in, Terracycle will donate 2 cents to the school or non-profit of your choice (read the FAQ for details). Fantastic work -- thanks for the heads up, Ginny!
