Schools’ Education ProgrammeApril 29, 2020
TICCIT (pronounced tick-it) is an educational programme that is all about trees, sustainability and the environment – and is incredibly worthwhile for you, your company, your community and the carton industry.
It was originally designed to be taught in schools but you can now Teach TICCIT at Home too.
The programme (Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees) was launched by the Paperboard Packaging Council in America and has proved to be a great success, with over 100,000 children taking part in the programme to date. Following a trial run of the programme in the UK and the Netherlands, the TICCIT programme has now launched Europe-wide.
The TICCIT programme involves teaching school children about trees, recycling and paper, then assisting each of them with planting a tree sapling inside a carton, which they then plant out at home. The current programme is aimed primarily at kids between the ages of 8 and 11. The success of the TICCIT programme – and the benefit to your organisation – relies on member companies taking ownership of the programme by partnering with their local schools. We recommend that you appoint a TICCIT ambassador from your company who can take ownership of the programme for you.
