EDucational recycling Trunks

Over the past few years, we created fun and informative educational recycling trunks for use by educators to teach more about recycling, the importance of protecting our environment, and how to start or enhance a recycling program. The trunks include a comprehensive guide to lesson planning for grades K through 12, visual aids and several hands-on materials including paper and aluminum bales made by us in a bale press.

We have just a few trunks left needing a sponsor to place them in their forever home! Each sponsorship of $250 places one trunk in a local school of your choice labeled with your logo which will be prominently displayed on the trunk for everyone to see. Your sponsorship will be advertised and shared on Facebook, on our website, and through other media resources. Please click on the button if you'd like to sponsor a trunk!

A huge thanks to our current trunk sponsors!
