Okay, so I’m a bit slow on the uptake with this product. Terracycle launched in the spring, and has been available locally for at least a couple months, and I just heard about it. I blame my distraction on wedding and school madness.
Terracycle’s product, which sounds to me like liquified worm castings, (or, as Terracycle likes to say, “worm poop”), might not be that innovative (at least in the organic gardening world where worm castings are de rigueur, but their packaging is: the organic fertilizer is packaged and sold in recycled soda bottles.
That’s right, the entire product is made out of garbage – from the contents to the packaging. As a result, TerraCycle “is the first mass-produced consumer product to have a negative environmental footprint.” Very cool.
Their products include an all-purpose plant food, African violet food, orchid food, Water-Less, and ProFusion. I’ve yet to try any Terracycle products, but I’ll keep you posted when the results are in.
