Classical Pianist Uses Recycled Chips Bags for CD Cases

Classical pianist Soyeon Lee made a big environmental statement last year when she wore a dress made from over 6,000 juice pouches to her Carnegie Hall recital. Now, Lee is taking her passion for spreading environmental awareness even further by teaming up with TerraCycle Inc. to release her new album, Re!nvented, with the world’s most eco-friendly CD packaging.

Re!nvented CD cases are made from chip bags collected from millions of school children in North America. The bags are shredded and compressed to provide an alternative to PVC, the material most often used for jewel cases, which is petrochemical-based, difficult to recycle and is linked to elevated cancer rates among workers and people who live near manufacturing plants.
