Making a Difference One Tree at a Time

The future, it’s often something that gets over looked. It’s not that we choose to overlook it; we are just so involved in the present that it is often forgotten by our daily routine. It’s only natural for the world to focus on the present rather than focus on what is to come. The sad truth is we have adopted this same ideology and belief to the current status of our planet. The earth has been experiencing extreme levels of climate change, and educating ourselves on this matter is the first step to progress.

The Cold Hard Facts

Let’s face it no one likes to hear bad news, but the reality is the world is changing. According to NASA’s website, since 2001 the Earth has experienced the warmest years on record.

TICCIT 2016

TICCIT 2016 – Thoro Packaging is happy to announce another successful TICCIT program for our kindergarten through sixth gradersPlanting Legacy Tree at five different elementary schools. The students participated in this 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 tree saplings so each school could participate in planting trees for future generations. In addition, The Prentice School received a special legacy tree for their campus.

This year’s sapling was a tulip poplar, a tall sturdy tree that provides lots of shade. We hope the students of Alcott Elementary School, Garretson Elementary, Cielo Vista Elementary School, St. Junipero Serra Catholic School and The Prentice School 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 18-22. For more information about TICCIT, visit www.ppcnet.org/ticcit.
