Thoro Celebrates National Paperboard Packaging Week

A BIG THANK YOU to all of the schools and the YMCA for participating in the TICCIT program this year.

Thoro Packaging presented the TICCIT program (Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees) to approximately 300 school age children and donated 100 tree saplings. Students from kindergarten to eighth grade were presented with a curriculum about the natural renewability of paperboard packaging and its recyclability.

Thoro was thrilled to once again have the opportunity to teach school kids about paperboard, trees, and recycling. The TICCIT program is a great way to demonstrate how fun and easy it is to take care of the Earth. It’s also a great opportunity to engage the future leaders of America in a fun and earth-friendly activity.

This year’s donated saplings are a Ponderosa Pine, which is native to the Western United States and provides lots of shade.

TICCIT is held during National Paperboard Packaging Week. This year it took place from April 21– 25. For more information about TICCIT, visit www.ppcnet.org/ticcit.
