JN Phillips Recycling Education Program
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 two elementary schools to bring awareness to recycling by running a school-wide contest. 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 and a visit from a Celtics player. Additionally, the entire school participates in an assembly at the end of the contest to learn why it is so important to recycle.
