GPES - December Recycling Award

Glacier Park continues to lead the way in recycling efforts.  They were recognized by Terracycle as the winner of the Great Drink Pouch Derby.  Our elementary students at Glacier Park have collected the most drink pouches in the state of Washington during the month of December.  Let's keep those drink pouches coming in so they can try for being a national winner.

This is a wonderful program sponsored by Terracycle, keeping drink pouches out of the waste stream.  TerraCycle upcycles and recycles traditionally non-recycable waste (including drink pouches, chip bags, tooth brushes and many more) into a large variety of consumer products. These products keep waste out of our landfills and contribute to a cleaner world. TerraCycle products are available at a wide range of major retailers from Wal*Mart to Target as well as online.

Thanks to Green Team Leaders, Cathy Haws and Connie Jo Erickson and the Green Team at GPES!
