I have been a long-time fan of Entenmann's Little Bites. Their tasty mini-muffins and brownies are one of my favorite treats to pack in my lunch, as well as my husband's. This year they partnered with TerraCycle to help bring awareness and ideas on how to do your part for the world this Earth Day (April 22, 2014) and even learn how Entenmann's packages are turned into really neat reusable lunch bags.
Entenmann's Bakery, a division of Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU), has partnered with TerraCycle, an international leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable post-consumer waste, to launch the first-ever Little Bites “Recycle…Reuse… Replenish” Fully Recyclable Lunch Earth Day awareness campaign and sweepstakes. The Little Bites “Recycle…Reuse…Replenish” campaign is aimed to educate consumers on how to recycle Little Bites Pouches and turn trash into cash for schools through the point redemption process. The unique partnership with TerraCycle demonstrates Entenmann’s dedication to recycling and reducing the amount of Entenmann’s Little Bites pouches that end up in landfills each year. The recycling and upcycling experts at TerraCycle are committed to creating new lives for Entenmann’s Little Bites pouches by taking the used packaging and turning it into innovative new products, while awarding points for schools that can be redeemed as cash for every Little Bites pouch received.

Reuse Put your sandwich in reusable lunchbox container to take home and use over again. Before you toss anything away, stop to think about ways you might be able to use it again. TerraCycle’s team of designers makes products out of wrappers and packaging. Check out more ideas.
Replenish Have any leftovers from lunch? Before you throw away, make sure to check out what biodegradable foods can be brought back home to be added to a compost pile. Make a compost at home! Be sure to include the three basic ingredients: Browns (dead leaves, branches, twigs, cardboard, newspaper), Greens (grass clippings, vegetable waste, fruit scraps, coffee grounds) and Water to make an effective outdoor composting area.
