Koenig & Bauer Celebrates Earth Day With Students

This spring, Koenig & Bauer is hoping to inspire students to create a more sustainable future as part of the national initiative, TICCIT (short for Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees) by visiting the German International School of Dallas, a local private elementary school. The TICCIT program, created by the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC), a trade association for companies that make paperboard packaging, aims to teach first-through-fifth grade students about the importance of trees, recycling, and the environment. 

To celebrate Earth Day, Koenig & Bauer executives Kilian Renschler, accompanied by Gerrit Zwergel, Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Finance Officer; and Eric Frank, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, planned an educational, and interactive day planned. 

 It began with a presentation to students on the abundance of paper-based products in their daily lives and the importance of recycling and sustainability. The interactive session allowed students to ask questions and learn more about the paper making process, the world of print, and how it impacts their daily lives. 

The Koenig & Bauer management team then went outside and joined the students in transferring live saplings into empty breakfast cereal boxes to be brought home with instructions on how to plant them. 

Created in 2010 by the PPC, the TICCIT program is held at schools across the country around Earth Day. After classroom learning sessions, students pot tree saplings into paperboard cartons filled with soil to take home and plant with their families. The paper cartons will naturally biodegrade once planted, completing the “trees into cartons, cartons into trees” lifecycle.
