Tweet #shopcartons to Plant a Tree This Month!
|July 17, 2014||Posted by Tracy Knutsen under Make A Difference, Reduce/Reuse/Recycle|
During the month of July, you can help donate a tree just by tweeting!
My friends at the Choose Cartons blog are partnering with Trees for the Future to donate a tree each time the hashtag #shopcartons is mentioned! By partnering with Trees for the Future, Choose Cartons, an Evergreen Packaging initiative, aims to help replant as many of the valuable resources they use for their packaging as possible.
In fact, they are donating up to 10,000 trees during the month of July….All you have to do is tweet. Pretty cool, huh?

Choose Cartons is a blog for eco-conscious parents (particularly moms!) that teaches the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling through DIY projects, up-cycled crafts, and fresh ideas. They also speak to the importance of using renewable resources, and as the name suggests, the positive effects of choosing cartons at the grocery store!
Top 3 Reasons You Should Choose Cartons at the Grocery Store:
- They are recyclable & renewable
- Cartons keep the contents inside super fresh
- Cartons take up less space in your fridge so you can buy even more groceries for the kids!
Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and our country programs, Trees for the Future has empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations.
