From A to Z, Real Simple has compiled a list of stuff that can (or cannot) be recycled or reused. Some of the more unexpected ones....
Elmer's Glue container recycling program with Walmart.
Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program, which recycles them into courts.
TerraCycle's juice bag recycling program--which actually PAYS for used juice bags and provides free shipping too. The bags are then turned into purses, totes and pencil cases that are then sold at Target and Walgreens stores across the country. (To make your own Juice Bag Pencil Bag, go here.)
