Milk does a Body Good, right? The containers? Well, that is a different story. According to the EPA, over 510,000 tons of milk cartons are generated in the US but only .5% of them are recycled. The rest sadly sit in a landfill. In my case, my town does not recycle milk or juice cartons. So, I can’t even do the right thing.
I firmly believe that for every problem is a solution. Enter Milkmuny, which saw the potential in all of those lonely milk cartons. So, the Company starting collecting milk and juice cartons and up-cycles them into cool wallets. You might wonder, how do they get all these cartons?
Show me the Milkmuny.
Schools and not for profit organization can collect the following 1/2 gallon milk and juice cartons, and the Company will pay 25 cents for each carton collected. Shipping is pre-paid. For a short video of the Company’s mission, see here.
Once you collect them, the milk cartons need to be washed and their tops cut off. See the below diagram.
Corporate partnerships are welcomed. The Company will take expired, misprints, and overrun of milk cartons.
Want to keep the Milkmuny love flowing?
Consider buying one of their cool wallets. The wallets are 3 by 4″ wallets with four accordion pockets. They cost $10.00 and can be purchased here .
On Earth Day, my school is collecting the above milk and juice cartons. We know where the Muny is. Helping the Earth.
