Harris Teeter is proud to announce its first winner in the company’s 1st annual We Think Green contest presented by Harris Teeter Together in Education. On Tuesday, December 16, Tye River Elementary will host a special ceremony to receive its We Think Green award.

Harris Teeter has a responsibility to act as a good corporate citizen and has instituted multiple recycling programs into its day to day operations. The company thinks it is important to also educate shoppers about what they can do to help ensure a sustainable future. Through Harris Teeter’s Together in Education program, the company launched We Think Green to teach students the benefits of recycling and provide schools with yet another opportunity to earn cash.

During the We Think Green Contest, nine schools – a first, second and third place winner from each Harris Teeter region – will be presented with a check for collecting plastic bags and turning them in to Harris Teeter for recycling. In Harris Teeter’s Northern Region, Tye River Elementary was the second place winner, collecting 3043 pounds of plastic bags during the month-long contest!

Harris Teeter is concerned about the environment and believes that by working together, we can all help achieve an environmentally friendly future. We hope media will join us for the check presentation.
