Because who doesn’t love candy? Trouble is, the wrappers of our favorite treats are not as easily recyclable as other types of paper and plastic because they’re made from mixed materials. According to the EPA, over 30% of municipal sold waste in the US comes in the form of packaging, including candy wrappers.
One California artist has created a solution: handmade pouches from upcycled candy wrappers. These pouches are coated with a layer of vinyl for strength and protection, and beautifully lined inside, so you can use them for just about anything: makeup, personal care items, pens and pencils, teas, medicines...
Each pouch helps keep trash out of our landfills and smiles on our faces!
