'Our Planet, Our Choice'
'Ár bPláinéid, Ár Rogha'

Hello Forest Friends

Welcome back to the Tree Day website for 2017. We've been working really hard in the forest all summer in preparation for Tetra Pak Tree Day, which takes place on 5th October.

This year's theme for Tetra Pak Tree Day is
Our Planet, Our Choice or Ár bPláinéid, Ár Rogha.
The campaign is all about the importance of natural resources, just like our friends the trees!

A natural resource is something that is found in nature and can be used by people. Examples of the earth's natural resources include light, air, water, plants, animals, soil, stone, minerals, and fossil fuels. People need some natural resources to stay alive. They use others to make their lives better.

On the back of your Avonmore School Milk cartons, you'll see lots of puzzles, facts and fun about how we can choose, use and protect natural resources and how we can make a difference to the planet.

You can also find lots of information on this website about our favourite natural resource – the tree. As well as keeping our air clean and our eco systems healthy, trees can be used to make hurls, tables, musical instruments and even your school milk carton.

We're also giving away FREE Amazing Oak tree saplings to plant on your school grounds and you can enter a competition to WIN an iPad for your class. Click here for Terms and Conditions

So it couldn't be easier to be a true friend of the environment and remember, it's our planet and it's our choice!

Yours sinsquirrely
