The Friends of Choate Park have started a Drink Pouch and Nabisco & Mars/Wrigley Wrapper Brigade in an effort to purchase new playground equipment for Choate Park.
For every drink pouch, Nabisco cookie wrapper and Mars candy wrappers The Friends of Choate Park collect they will receive .02/for each item when sent to TerraCycle.
What a great way to teach children about recycling and let them see what recycling rewards can bring them.
Children will be able to drop off pouches & wrappers in the cafeteria in the green bin at the McGovern School starting March 9th, 2010. We would like to expand this program to the other elementary school, possibly the middle school and the town dump/recycling center. We will keep you posted about these changes as they come about.
Here are the pouches and wrappers we are collecting:
