Tristin + Tyler's mom and producer, Tiffany, takes you behind the scenes of the brand.

Plastic Bottles into Backpacks? Yup!

Taking something old and making it new is recycling, right?  Now, upcycling is something TOTALLY different.  What do I mean? Well, upcycling is taking something old and transforming it into something with a greater purpose! We are SUPER HUGE fans of upcycling - but you know that already!  Tired of me saying it? Well then, let Tristin and Tyler show you! In the next episode of "Tristin & Tyler's Tales from the City!" meet Ashok Kamal, co-founder of the company Bennu.

Bennu is taking huge steps to help the environment by making products out of trash.  In this episode, Tristin and Tyler learn the SUPER DUPER, TOP SECRET, ULTRA COOL, GREENER THAN THE COLOR GREEN, way to turn trash into something totally useful - and they had a BLAST doing it!

One of the things I like most about Bennu is their committment to support kids and education.  They recently launched a GREEN MY BAG online community design contest.  Students can design a "green-themed" logo and the winning design will be on Bennu backpacks and the winner will receive other prizes too! Soooo cool!  Check out the contest here.

And check out the episode THIS WEEK!  Yes, I said this week! I know you're excited, I can feel you trembling!  So make sure and grab the kiddies and check out some smart, green fun with Tristin and Tyler!
