New Fundraising Opportunity - MilkMuny

. September 2, 2009

More than 510,000 tons of milk and juice cartons are generated every year in the United States, but sadly, less than .05% ever get recycled according to an EPA report of Municipal Solid Waste. Paper cartons ARE recyclable, however, “because of the wax lining, are not universally recycled. Each locality is different, depending on their recycling process capability”, says the National Recycling Coalition.

MilkMuny is an upstart company similar to TerraCycle in that they take a product (in this case milk and juice cartons) that is normally thrown into the garbage and make them into a useful and unique product.

MilkMuny will pay 50 cents to the Woolridge Elementary School Green Club for every carton that we send them. They even pay for the shipping costs! Details will be forthcoming about which cartons we are collecting. So in the meantime, save up those milk and juice cartons, and check out this cool video about MilkMuny.
