The TICCIT educational programme has been welcomed into many schools and groups across Europe.  Photographs from those visits receive great publicity from local media.  We invite you to take a look at TICCIT In Action and to get involved in the programme.

The success of TICCIT relies on converters and cartonboard mills partnering with their local schools.

Please send your photos to so that we can add them to this gallery!

“It’s TICCIT Day at the Christophorusschule in Essen-Kray!”

On May 3rd 2024, TICCIT returns to the Christophorusschule Essen. Together the Christophorusschule Essen and the Schumacher Packaging Group, one of the largest European manufacturers for Packaging solutions made from corrugated and solid cardboard ( came together to bring this exciting initiative over to the children of Essen-Kray!  Deputy principal Julia Klinge, along with Rüdiger Nölleke, the independent interim manager since July 2022 and current managing director of Schumacher Packaging Services GmbH in Lehrte, initiated this environmental education program at Christophorus School three years ago. They plan to continue hosting it annually in the future.

May 2023 – Essen, GERMANY

The Christophorus School Essen and Günter Thomas Trendhouse 42 GmbH from Gelsenkirchen have run a TICCIT day, for the 2nd time.  3rd grade pupils and the teaching staff have both been inspired to be more sustainable!  As the session was arranged quite quickly, it was not possible to gather enough cartonboard cartons for all the pupils to plant the saplings, so initiative was used and flower pots made of fibres (similar to egg cartons) were sourced which are also compostable!

Edelmann organised this event for one of the local schools in Heidenheim to educate kids about trees, forests, paper making and carton making processes and of course recycling.  The photos say it all – happy faces of kids who just prepared a sapling in a carton to be planted at home with their families.
