We had this problem at my son's preschool. Some solutions: provide beverages bought in bulk and served in washable reusable glasses and/or encourage the use of the reusable thermos with watered down natural unfiltered fruit juice or water. Also please let parents know that they are not recyclable and that for the most part the contents are high fructose corn syrup a major cause of childhood onset diabetes.

I received the following email from a visitor to our site:
"I have searched, without success, for a facility that accepts juice pouces/boxes for recycling.  Might you have any information or direction I may follow to come to some resolve?
"I live in Michigan and we currently are collecting all juice pouches generated at the school my children attend.  We clean them and recycle them into items for sale at the school store, using all profits for our H.O.M.E- Helping Our Mother Earth Program.  At the end of the school year we still have a surplus (several hundred) and I cannot dispose of them."
Any ideas or suggestions?
