Thoro Packaging presented the TICCIT program (Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees) and donated 50 tree saplings to three community schools. Students from second 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 sapling is 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 22 – 26. For more information about TICCIT, visit www.ppcnet.org/ticcit.
