Franklin School Thinks Green in Time for Earth Day


Franklin School Thinks Green in Time for Earth Day

ROXBURY, NJ (April 28, 2017) – Just in time for Earth Day, Franklin Elementary School won a classroom party through a nationwide recycling contest, “Entenmann’s Little Bites: Make the Pledge Promotion”, an Earth Month program in partnership with New Jersey-based TerraCycle

The school pledged to help the environment by reducing waste. One school was randomly selected as the sweepstakes winner of the promotion. 

Franklin was eligible for this prize due to their recycling efforts, including a recycling corner which makes receptacles both accessible and eye-catching while encouraging people to think green. 

TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help collect and recycle hard-to-recycle waste.
