W.H. Leary to Plant Trees for Earth Day
On April 22, W.H. Leary, Tinley Park, IL, will lead an event where students and teachers at Southwest Chicago Christian Schools Tinley Park Campus will plant a tree in honor of Earth Day on April 22 and Arbor Day on April 29.
This is part of the Paperboard Packaging Councils “Trees into Cartons, Cartons into Trees” program that highlights the biodegradability of paper-based packaging. Chris Leary, director of sales and service, along with other W. H. Leary employees, will instruct students on the benefits of recycling, describe how paper is made and explain the many reasons why trees are important to the environment.
They also will briefly introduce students to the world of packaging and folding cartons. Each student will plant a Colorado Blue Spruce Sapling inside a milk carton and will be encouraged to take the saplings home and plant both the sapling and the carton (which is biodegradable) in their own backyards.
