Removes 2Million Pounds Of Waste From Rivers, Canals & Waterways

The TerraCycle Global Foundation a non profit organization reached an impressive milestone last month, announcing that they’ve removed over 2 million pounds of waste from rivers, canals, and waterways.
Since its founding, organization has targeted ocean pollution right at its source—waterways. When polluted, they send waste directly to oceans, harming sea life and the environment. Over 1000 tons have since been diverted and recycled.
And, because the Foundation is founded by New Jersey-based TerraCycle—a two decades-old company known for turning plastic waste into useful items for sale—none of the litter collected ever goes to waste.
