WE ARE HALF WAY TO OUR GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT IS AS EASY AS  A-B-C!

Help Us Reach Our Goal  to Get
A  Bench for Caps

 

Join us this year in a unique and interesting recycling challenge as we collect plastic caps that will be recycled into a park bench for our school.  We have entered into a partnership with Green Tree Plastics of Evansville, Indiana to collect plastic caps that will be recycled into a park bench for Deer Park Grade School while at the same time, teaching our students about team work and the importance of recycling.  The park bench will be made from 100% recycled plastic products.  (see the attached photo).

WE NEED 260 POUNDS OF PLASTIC CAPS AND LIDS.   AS OF NOVEMBER 9, WE HAVE REACHED THE HALF-WAY GOAL OF 130 POUNDS!

Here is a list of some of the acceptable caps and lids that we will be collecting:

drink bottle caps, flip top caps (ketchup, mustard), spark paint caps, ointment tube caps, medicine bottle caps, milk jug caps, detergent caps, hair spray caps, toothpaste caps, deodorant caps, and lids from cottage cheese containers, mayonnaise jars, yogurt lids, peanut butter jar lids, ice cream bucket lids under 8”, cool whip container lids, coffee can lids, and butter lids

Please see the attached list of acceptable plastics AND unacceptable plastic products. 

If you have acceptable plastic caps and lids, please have your child bring them to school and submit them to their classroom teacher.  Students from the 8th grade will be in charge of collecting and sorting the lids.  When we reach our goal, we will take our collection of caps and lids to Evansville, Indiana and pick up our park bench.   We hope you can help us meet our challenge while helping our environment!  

ACCEPTABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE CAPS/LIDS
