Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees
PPC members have the opportunity to purchase trees from the Arbor Day Foundation at $2.00 per tree for use in the TICCIT program. TICCIT ("Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees") is an outreach and education program highlighting the natural renewability and sustainability of paperboard packaging. At the center of TICCIT is a mainstay of the typical school day: the milk carton.
As part of TICCIT, milk cartons will be collected out of schools' waste streams and re-used for planting trees. Seeds and saplings will be planted in the cartons, and then the new carton-and-tree units will be planted in the ground. The cartons provide protection and a natural water funnel for the new trees. As the trees grow, the cartons break down, completing the trees into cartons, cartons into trees cycle.
