JN Phillips Recycling Education Program

Program Overview

The Boston Celtics in partnership with JN Phillips strive to promote a greener environment through the Recycling Education Program.

Each year the program works with three elementary schools to bring awareness to recycling by running a contest among the participating schools. Each classroom collects plastic bottles and cans and by the end of the selected time period the class with the most recycled items wins tickets to a Celtics game. Additionally, the school with the most recycled items receives an assembly with a Celtics player while learning the importance of recycling.
