Elmers Glue and Twins Make 5 Giveaway

Elmer’s Glue Crew Info & Giveaway

I recently learned about this next program and thought it was such a fabulous idea that I wrote the company and asked if I could help spread the word about it.  They were even kind enough to offer a giveaway to our readers in hopes that they too would be inspired to “spread the word”.
More about the giveaway later in this post, first here’s the information on this amazing program:

Elmer’s® Products, Inc., a leader in adhesives, arts and crafts and educational products, developed the Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program™

The Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program, launched in 2008, encourages classrooms nationwide to actively learn about recycling by collecting empty glue bottles and glue sticks to be recycled. Starting on Earth Day through the end of the school year, teachers and parent volunteers simply take their boxes of “empties” to the nearest Walmart store and drop them off with the people greeter. From there, Walmart ensures the empty products are handled by the appropriate recycling facilities.

Program participation exploded this year to more than 16,000 teachers, 83,000 classrooms and one million students, resulting in the recycling of approximately 2 million Elmer’s glue sticks and bottles.

Each year, the Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program rewards a classroom for its outstanding efforts in recycling. As part of the grand prize, Elmer’s works with American Forests to plant 1,000 trees in the classroom’s honor as part of the Global ReLeaf ecosystem restoration project which often reforests wildfire decimated areas.

Teachers may register for the free program all year long at ElmersGlueCrew.com. Those teachers already registered do not need to register again each year.

Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program is gearing up for the 2009-2010 campaign which will begin in late-August/early-September. Follow our progress on Twitter and Facebook.
