Join the Elmer’s Glue Crew in Celebrating 40 Days of Earth-Friendly Living! (Giveaway)

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been celebrating Earth Day for forty years! To celebrate, Elmer’s is kicking off its “40 Days of Earth-Friendly Living”! What does that involve? Plenty!

On the Elmer’s Glue Crew website, they’ve posted a 40-day calendar of eco-friendly tips and ideas that kids and parents can do together. It includes easy-to-do items like: Turn off the lights when you leave the room to conserve energy. And more challenging ideas, such as: Leave the car at home and walk everywhere today. Work together as a family to see how many things you can accomplish on the calendar!

Also on the Elmer’s Glue Crew site, you can also read about how students and teachers can get involved in recycling their glue bottles at Walmart. Teachers can download an academic planning calendar, lesson plans and other recycling-related materials. There’s even the opportunity to win great prizes for the classroom!

One winner will receive an Elmer’s bookbag filled with Elmer’s supplies (school glue, glue sticks, etc.)! (The other items in the picture are not included.) I received one of these prize bags from Elmer’s last year, and I was amazed at all of the products inside! We still have some left after using them throughout the school year. To enter, visit the Elmer’s Glue Crew 40-day calendar and leave a comment here with one activity from the calendar that you and your family will be doing (besides the two I mentioned above). This first entry is mandatory.

  147. we will Find new usues for old things

    Before you toss something in the trash,
    consider how you might be able to
    reuse it. For example, an empty tissue
    box becomes a great plastic bag
    dispenser and old sheets can be used
    as dropcloths for painting or blankets
    for the beach.
