About TICCIT – a Learning Programme for Life

TICCIT (pronounced tick-it) is an educational programme that is all about trees, sustainability and the environment – and is incredibly worthwhile for you, your company, your community and the carton industry.

It was originally designed to be taught in schools but you can Teach TICCIT at Home too – Just click here.  The current programme is aimed primarily at kids between the ages of 8 and 11.

The success of the TICCIT programme – and the benefit to your organisation – relies on companies taking ownership of the programme by partnering with their local schools. We recommend that you appoint a TICCIT ambassador from your company who can take ownership of the programme for you. FREE support materials are available to you for download below:

“The kids loved getting their hands dirty and planting the sapling trees into the boxes with their fingers. A very positive experience for them.”
