Diamond Packaging to Celebrate Earth Day 2018 at the Seneca Park Zoo

Diamond Packaging will celebrate Earth Day 2018 at the
Seneca Park Zoo on April 22, 2018

Diamond Packaging will celebrate Earth Day by partnering with the Seneca Park Zoo on Saturday, April 21, 2018, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Diamond employees will help kids plant trees as part of the TICCIT (“Trees into Cartons, Cartons into Trees”) program, an educational outreach program for school-aged children held every year to honor Earth Day and highlight the renewability and sustainability of paper and paperboard packaging.

Children will be given a Colorado blue spruce sapling and soil, and instructed how to plant the sapling in a paperboard folding carton (which biodegrades over time) supplied by Diamond.

Diamond will also help children plant wildflower seeds (selected to work as habitat for native monarch butterflies) in a specially-designed, paperboard folding carton to coincide with the Seneca Park Zoo’s Butterfly Beltway conservation project. The goal of the project is to add more gardens, inspire others to plant gardens, and reach more people about the importance of butterfly conservation.
