Who could imagine that a granola bag could be turned into a watering can?  Or, a drink pouch into a plant caddy?  TerraCycle®, Inc., the pioneering upcycling and recycling company, has three new products available for the eco-conscious gardener.   The Terra Stone Plant Caddy, the Eco-Terra Watering Can and TerraCycle’s trademark worm poop All-Purpose Plant Food will be on store shelves this spring.  These are all great additions to the host of tools used by gardeners who want to do their part for the environment.                                                                                                  

Terra Stone Plant Caddy 

The Terra Stone Plant Caddy by Plastec is made in the USA from recycled drink pouches and will be available in Target, Wegmans and select True Value, Ace Hardware and independent garden centers in Spring 2012.  The retail price will range between $12.99 and $16.99.

Eco Terra Watering Can 

The Eco-Terra Watering Can by Plastec is made in the USA from recycled granola bags.  It will be available in select True Value, Ace Hardware and independent garden centers as well as Wegmans in Spring 2012 for an approximate retail price of $5.99-9.99.

The worm poop All-Purpose Plant Food was introduced in 2004 and is loved by gardeners. The popular plant food’s labeling, formulation and packaging was rethought and redesigned for Spring 2012.  Made from liquefied worm castings, it is 100% natural and packaged in used soda and sport drink bottles. The 32 oz. all-purpose granular plant food will be sold for an approximate retail price of $10, while the 20 oz. all-purpose liquid plant food will be approximately $5.  For retail locations, visit or

The granola bags and juice pouches used in the production of the watering can and plant caddy were collected through TerraCycle’s Brigade® programs which pay two cents for every item collected to the school or charity of the collector’s choice. 

“These recycled products are a new approach to gardening, where the tools gardeners implement in their hobby are recycled every bit as much as the plants they help to regenerate each season,” said TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky. “They make it is easy to minimize your environmental footprint while using items that are functional and great conversation-starters.”
