Did you know Earth Day began in 1970? You may not, it really wasn’t until the 1990’s and with the the mobilization of over 200,000 people, that the celebration became a widely recognized, globalized movement. I was a child in the midst of this, and it had a HUGE impact on me and my surroundings.
Each of us still has ways we might improve, but I LOVE the fact that my boys will have grown up in a age where recycling is an EVERY DAY activity. I chose to bring you this valuable information, because I applaud Entenmann’s for it’s efforts like partnering with eco-friendly organizations in the reduction of waste and rejuvenation of resources!
Entenmann’s Little Bites ® snacks, the individually portioned lunch snack that’s perfect for lunch boxes and grab-and-go fun, is helping kids and families become recycling pros this year through two cool new eco-initiatives with both TerraCycle® and the Arbor Day Foundation — just in time for Earth Day 2015!
Entenmann’s is partnering with TerraCycle®, an international leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable post-consumer waste, for the 3rd annual “Turn Trash to Cash” campaign that helps kids earn cash for their schools by recycling the pouches from their Little Bites snack time favorites!
As part of the Entenmann’s Little Bites Pouch Brigade, schools, community organizations and individuals throughout the country collect empty LittleBites pouches and send them to TerraCycle to earn points that can be redeemed as cash for the school!
TerraCycle turns the used packaging into innovative new products at TerraCycle. . . like tote bags, pencil cases and even picnic benches!
