Over the past couple of years, aquarists Christian Legner and Katie Dicioccio from the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, have worked on the Terracycle Campaign. They have collected and sent in granola bar wrappers and Frito Lay potato chip bags from around the beach and have raised over $100 for N.E.S.T.. Many N.E.S.T. Volunteers have worked hard to assist in collecting these wrappers and bags to add to those collected at the Aquarium.
Here is a list of items that can be donated:
• Any granola, power, nut, or Clif bar with a foil lining.
Any Frito Lay bag. No other chip companies.
• No candy or cookie wrappers.
For those who wish to participate:
Once you’ve saved up a stash of wrappers and bags, contact Christian Legner at the Aquarium (252) 473-3494 x235 to arrange a drop-off. Please make sure wrappers and chip bags are separated from each other. Thanks!
