Clif Bar and TerraCycle have teamed up to create the Wrapper Brigade. The program is designed to reduce the number of energy bar wrappers that end up in landfills.

Once you sign up for an account you will receive 4 mailing bags that hold 200 wrappers each. When you return a bag filled with energy bar wrappers Clif Bar will donate $.02 per wrapper to the charity of your choice.

There is no cost to you and you get to help out a charity as well as the planet. Sounds like goodness to me.
