Natural Awakenings Indianapolis

Helping Ninjas Continue Efforts with Tom Wood Subaru and TerraCycle to Upcycle Plastic Waste

Helping Ninjas strike again! The organization continues its efforts to reduce the burden on landfills by gathering items for the TerraCycle box at Tom Wood Subaru.

The dealership sponsors a collection box for TerraCycle to help area residents recycle items that are not typically accepted at local recycling centers, including snack wrappers and coffee/tea capsules. Collected items are upcycled and repurposed into items like park benches, which are donated to children’s parks in the Indianapolis area.

Founded in 2017 by Leo Barry and his mom Lindsey, Carmel-based Helping Ninjas began as an initiative to save the pollinators and, in turn, help the environment. Since it began, the student-led group, comprised of area youth, has established a number of programs to educate kids about environmental awareness and action.
