Philly's recent Greenfest turned out to be a gorgeous day, attracting more than 15,000 people to Headhouse Square, where more than 100 businesses, organizations and other greenies had set up booths.
One of the highlights is always the "Green Innovators" program, and this year eight businesses and organizations were nominated for the $750 award.
And the winner was....TerraCycle, the Trenton company that recycles and upcycles just about everything you could think of. They pay schools and charitable institutions to send them stuff, then they make something cool out of it and resell it ... and manage to make a profit along the way.
Nothing is too disgusting, apparently. When I checked in with them last November, they were coming up with a plan to recycle cigarette butts, of all things.
