Create a classroom recycling center.
Reuse paper that has only been used on one side as scratch paper or to doodle on.
Save trees by sending school notices via text message or email instead of paper copies.
Skip the brown bag and bring lunch in a cute lunch box and portion off snacks in reusable containers.
Reuse milk and yogurt containers, coffee tins, boxes and more to hold papers, crayons, markers, pens, etc.
Spruce up the classroom with house plants, not only do they look pretty, but they also help air flow.
Use a reusable water bottle.
Power down computers completely versus putting them into sleep mode.
Carpool to school with friends, walk or ride bikes instead of driving in the car or bus.
Participate in the Entenmann’s Little Bites® Pouch Make the Pledge Program with TerraCycle®.
Over the last few years, my kids’ school has been collecting Entenmann’s Little Bites ® Pouches through TerraCycle®. TerraCycle®, an international recycling company, turns waste into plastic that can be used for products such as park benches, recycling bins and playgrounds. Through the free recycling program, you can collect waste, like Entenmann’s Little Bites® pouches, and ship to TerraCycle® for processing using a pre-paid shipping label.
From now through April 30, 2018, TerraCycle® and Entenmann’s Little Bites® want to reward you for making the pledge to make eco-friendly choices a habit. Plus, if you collect Entenmann’s Little Bites® pouches on behalf of a K-12 school, you could be placed in the running to win a Classroom Party. It’s easy to participate: make the pledge, send in the waste, and earn more rewards.
The Entenmann’s Little Bites ® Pouch Recycling Program is open to any individual, school or organization interested in reducing local landfill waste. To learn more about the Entenmann’s Little Bites ® Pouch Recycling Program here.
