Southern Champion Tray To Visit Schools For Earth Day
Monday, April 10, 2017
This week, Southern Champion Tray team members will present to 12 local elementary schools the TICCIT (pronounced “TICKET”) program – Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees.
Southern Champion Tray is a leading producer of paperboard packaging products and a member of the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC). Each year in April and May, PPC members participate in this program to honor Earth Day. The program highlights renewability and sustainability of paper and paperboard packaging.
In the TICCIT program, member companies partner with local schools where they donate tree seeds or native saplings and teach students how to plant them in a milk carton, tissue box or other paper-based carton. The students are then instructed to plant these carton-and-tree units in the ground. The cartons provide protection and a natural water funnel for the new trees. As the trees grow, the cartons biodegrade, completing the trees into cartons, cartons into trees cycle.
Southern Champion Tray will visit 12 local elementary schools on the following dates:
- April 12 – McConnell Elementary
- April 13 – East Lake Elementary
- April 19 – Grace Academy
- April 20 – Nolan Elementary
- April 21 – Thrasher Elementary and Jasper Elementary
