ticcit_janThoro Packaging is happy to announce another successful TICCIT program for our third and fifth graders in the community. This week the students participated in an Arbor Day event in which they learned how trees are grown and harvested for the making of paperboard and then turned into packaging materials that are recyclable and renewable. As part of the TICCIT program, Thoro donated 100 trees so that each student was provided with a sapling to plant in an open-top box or milk carton.

This year’s sapling is a ponderosa pine, which provides lots of shade and has long, soft needles. May the students of Collett and Eastvale Elementary Schools enjoy watching their trees grow for many years to come!

TICCIT is held during National Paperboard Packaging Week, which this year took place from April 16-20. For more information about TICCIT, visit www.ppcnet.org/ticcit.
