school-gardenPut those used milk and juice cartons to good use with the Carton 2 Garden Contest sponsored by Evergreen Packaging. They're looking for schools who can come up with the most creative way to construct a garden made from recycled milk/juice cartons and share their experience.

This is a great way to introduce school kids to the hands-on nature of gardening and teach them about sustainability through the upcycling of milk and juice cartons that might otherwise be thrown away.

On May 22, 2015, sixteen winners from eight different regions will receive award packages valued at $1,000 and four national winners will receive prizes valued at $2,500.

Hurry!  Applications are due by April 22, 2015.  For complete contest rules and details, visit
