At the Fence with Terracycle!

Hey neighbors!

How many of you have heard of Terracycle?  This is a really neat company that ... recycles!  This is not your normal recycling though, they make some really neat products out of previously used products! And they would make GREAT gifts!  I received the neatest iPad case, a change purse and a tote bag.

The iPad case ($55) and change purse are old USPS postal bags! I LOVE it!  The inside of the bag is lined with a soft ultrasuede.  This gives you a unique looking case on the outside, with a sturdy canvas, yet inside your iPad is safe.  The top has a sturdy zipper and there is a long pocket with rivets on the outside. You can easily place cords or flash drives.


The matching change purse ($14) is made of the same sturdy canvas with a zippered closure.  It fits right in the pocket of the iPad case.  And of course they look GREAT together!


As I said this are old postal bags from the USPS.  A little information from Terracycle:

iPad Case
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night shall prevent you from toting your favorite e-reader along wherever your travels take you. Handmade from repurposed mail sacks, these sturdy, canvas cases deliver edgy style to your iPad while protecting its delicate surface with a gentle ultrasuede.

Change Purse
Handmade from repurposed mail sacks, this graphic pouch delivers style to your daily collection of goods. Keep one handy for your cash, cards and keys, or tame your stash of mail, notes and receipts.



Don't these look great!  I really like mine.  I just slide it in my purse and I am ready to go.

The last item I received was a tote bag made from recycled Capri Sun drink packs!  I know this one will go over well with the children! This is a really nice tote bag.  You can use it for school books, trips to the library or park.

More About Terracycle:
TerraCycle upcycles and recycles traditionally non-recyclable waste (including drink pouches, chip bags, toothbrushes and much more) into a large variety of consumer products. These products keep waste out of our landfills and contribute to a cleaner world. TerraCycle products are available at a wide range of major retailers from Wal*Mart to Target as well as online.



Be sure to look at the other items Terracycle has.  I would really like to get their Mail Carrier Tote to match my set!

Now, I am going to send the TerraCycle Capri Sun tote bag to the winner of this giveaway. (US only please)  This is another one that will not end in time for the holidays.  If you want one for a gift, please go to the company's website and place an order.

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
