Everyone needs to shop for household items, right? So why not support a company that not only makes great products at a tremendous bargain, but also one that is environmentally conscious and supports local schools? Scotties — the brand of paper towels, napkins, and bath tissue — is hosting its fifth annual Scotties Trees Rock Campaign this year. This campaign is for third, fourth, fifth, and six graders and is designed to educate, inform, and inspire kids to think about why trees are so awesome! Trees not only are beautiful to look at but also give us shade and oxygen, they provide homes for animals and also provide us with so many paper products that we use on a daily basis. From the tissues that wipe runny noses to the paper towels that wipe our counters, and of course toilet paper, trees do all sorts of things for our bodies, homes, and environment.
Scotties is a company that operates out of the US and Canada and it believes in respecting, protecting, and nourishing our forests. In fact, Scotties only uses wood pulp fibers from The Tree Growing Company, a company that for over 50 years has been investing in and promoting sustainable tree growth and responsible forest management. Additionally, and best of all, Scotties plants 3 trees for every 1 they use! Awesome, right?
Another important campaign from Scotties is their Trees Rock Campaign. During this campaign, Scotties invites kids in grades 3rd – 6th to submit a video (up to three minutes in length) sharing enthusiasm for trees and why they rock. The wining video will come home with a $10,000 prize that can be used for any environmentally sustainable project for their school! Kids can enter now until Nov 13.
So pass this info onto to any 3rd- 6th graders you know and encourage them to enter their own video telling why trees rock to them! If your interested, head on over Scotties Trees Rock to learn how to submit your video and check them out on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about this great campaign.
Disclosure: Thank you Scotties for sponsoring this discussion today!
