The Responsible Package’s Newly Redesigned Website is Live, Provides Educational Materials

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON – The Responsible Package today announced the launch of its newly redesigned website: theresponsiblepackage.com 

The improved website promotes paper and paper-based packaging as a responsible choice, and provides information and materials related to The Responsible Package’s youth education program.

“In 2017, The Responsible Package’s youth education print materials will reach 150,000 fifth grade students at 1,132 schools in 14 states,” said AF&PA Director of Packaging Gretchen Spear. “Through our updated website,we are able to distribute these materials to even more educators, students and their families.”

The youth education materials support the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) education initiative and National Science Education Standards. By structuring the lessons to align with these standards, the materials provide a valuable program that teachers can use to supplement existing curricula on topics such as recycling, science, the environment, and math.

The materials include in-class materials, family take-home materials, a recycling family pledge, and additional lessons. All materials are available for download free of charge on the new website.

The Responsible Package youth education program’s objectives are to raise awareness about responsible consumer behavior regarding paper-based packaging and educate youth to understand that paper-based packaging is a responsible choice.
