Elmer's #BagItForward Glue Crew project

This year the boys and I were blessed to participate in the Bag it Foward program with Elmer's where we donated a bag full of school supplies to our local elementary school. Through the same program we are getting ready to promote recycling with the Elmer's Glue Crew. 

I highly recommend both these programs.
There is still time to participate in Bag It Forward program , you don't have to be a blogger.  You can donate school supplies and upload photos on the Bag It Forward site.

Also Elmer's is donating items to the Kids in Need Foundation for every "like" on the Elmer’s Facebook page through September 1, 2011
It gets better! Elmer's is a Upromise partner and every time you purchase Elmer's of Krazy Glue product with your registered cards a percentage of that purchase is put into your Upromise account.
The boys and I created a fun recycling container for our Homeschool Co-Op to use this year. 130+ kids use a lot of glue in a school year. In the theme of recycling I used a Tide box that we had just emptied and some scrapbook paper I had left over from a project.  We downloaded some great coloring pages in the recycling and Elmer's theme to create our Glue Crew collection bin. 
The Glue Crew is an awesome partnership with Elmer's and Walmart. In mid April students and teachers can bring their recycled glue stick and glue bottles to their local Walmart or through TerraCycle.  The Glue Crew website has not only the awesome images to color and decorate your collection bin with but all  tons of lesson plans and other goodies  that area helpful in teaching students to be green and responsible.
I hope you will join us this year on the Glue Crew and recycle those glue containers so they can be reused and upcycled into new products.   Follow our journey in creating our container below. There are quite a few pictures so I use to share the journey with you.

This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Elmer's #BagItForward #collectivebias, all product opinions are my own.
