ABOUT SPONSOR:

ep_logo_rgb The Carton 2 Garden program is part of Evergreen Packaging’s ongoing effort to raise awareness among consumers on the eco-friendly benefits of paper cartons. Cartons are an eco-friendly packaging choice because more than 70% of milk carton packaging is paper, made from trees, a renewable resource. Currently, over 50% of households in the United States have access to recycling programs that accept paper milk cartons.
