Looking for a Greener Fundraiser?

As Fall Fundraising has come into full swing, we have been getting flooded with PTA board members, parents and school staff hoping to introduce their school community to a greener fundraising option. We welcome and look forward to this cycle of events that happens this time of year. We understand the disappointment felt by some when they are faced with non-green fundraising choices sent home in their child's backpack. We thought we'd write about it to let you know that it is perfectly normal - many feel the way way you do.

If your school community isn't responding to the same 'ol fundraisers, and you want to add a greener fundraiser, feel free to drop us a line. Our eco-friendly fundraising ideas are great as a primary or supplemental fundraiser should your school have already started or completed a fundraiser this year. No need to wait until next year - you can make a greener choice available this year. Contact us - we'll get you started.

Litter Free Lunch

We are excited to announce that Litter Free Lunch Napkins have been added to the great list of eco-friendly fundraising products we include in our programs. These fun, durable and machine-washable napkins are manufactured in the USA in the Chicago area. Litter Free Lunch was started by two Moms, Felice Farran and Megan Wojtyla, in the Chicagoland area. Felice and Megan found a common need that they were trying to satisfy for their own children while packing their school lunches. In between soccer games, doctor's appointments, music lessons and Cub Scout meetings, Litter Free Lunch napkins were born and are filling lunch boxes around the country. We loved this product for our green fundraisers!
