Tetra Pak Tree Day

Be Planet Positive & Plant a Tree this Tetra Pak Tree Day
The Tree Council of Ireland, supported by Tetra Pak, is calling on primary schools across the country to get involved in Tetra Pak Tree Day and plant a tree on Thursday, 3rd October 2019. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Be Planet Positive!”, with a focus on the things that primary school children can easily do in their everyday lives to help nature and our environment.
Tetra Pak Tree Day is an important date in the school calendar that gives children, teachers and parents the opportunity to put down the school books, get outdoors and learn to become more environmentally aware. From September, the campaign’s mascot Sammy Squirrel will feature on Avonmore school milk cartons and share seven simple messages on how to make better choices and be planet positive.
As part of Tetra Pak Tree Day, up to 1,000 native tree saplings will be made available through the campaign website for primary schools to plant on their grounds, or in a pot in the classroom. More details about the campaign including guided woodland walks, class lessons, fun tree facts, activities and more can be found on www.treeday.ie.
