Cashless Classroom Fundraising

Many eco-fundraising programs pay participants to collect and recycle such things as chip bags, beauty care waste and drink pouches. The Drink Pouch Brigade—offered by Capri Sun and TerraCycle—rewards participants and their schools with points and cash donations for collecting drink pouches. Hazelwood Elementary School in Washington did just that, using money generated through collecting drink pouches to help counteract school-wide funding cuts.

Millersville student nominated for Campus Sustainability Champion Award

Each year the Pennsylvania Environmental Resource Consortium (PERC) recognizes universities across Pennsylvania with the Campus Sustainability Champion Award. This year, Millersville’s own Stephanie Bradley, a junior majoring in social work, has been nominated for the prestigious award to be announced at the PERC 2014 Fall Conference, held on Nov. 12 at Penn State’s University Park campus in State College. One of the programs at Millersville that Bradley helps to implement is TerraCycle.

Eco-friendly back to school products from TerraCycle

Have you seen the store aisle for back to school?  There is so much there and hundreds of little and big sized crayons, papers, notebooks, backpacks, totes, etc... How do you decide what to buy? Do you take the kids and let them pick? Do you tackle the supply shopping solo for sanity? I take my youngest, but my teen can care less about shopping with me for supplies. We just do the clothing. I will find things on my own I know he will need. When in doubt, why not buy a product that has up-cycled the hard-to-recycle waste. Eco-friendly bags, lunch sacks and pencil cases from TerraCycle are fun and sport popular brands your child and teen love.
