These clever Frito-Lay speakers are one of the newest designs in recycled packaging gadgets by the eco-conscious and innovative plastic recyclers, TerraCycle. From cool school backpacks, to innovative office gear, TerraCycle is the pioneer of modern post-consumer recycling efforts.

A variety of eco-conscious companies including Frito-Lay and Mars have joined forces with TerraCycle, and for eco-minded consumers, many of TerraCycle's cool products can be found at major retailers including Walmart and The Home depot.

Implications - Not only are these speakers eco-friendly and aesthetically unique, but the battery-free plug in devices are easy to use and transport. Designed in partnership with Merkury Innovations, a recognized consumer electronics company, the speakers are a fresh perspective on technology that marries environmentalism, art and clever branding.
