We are now participating in the TerraCycle Brigade™, which means we are collecting several items to divert them from landfills and earn money.

You can help by having your child bring in any of the items listed below! Ships Ahoy will send them to TerraCycle and, in return, receive $.02 for each item which will go towards improving our center. You can even track our school’s collection efforts through TerraCycle’s website by setting up an account at and joining our team.

TerraCycle will upcycle the materials we collect into cool new eco-friendly and affordable products that are available at major retailers.

The TerraCycle Brigade programs are a fun and easy way for us to empower children to make a difference locally and globally while at the same time learning about the importance of recycling and reusing. Thank you in advance for helping us reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and raise money. Your participation is a key part of our efforts.
