As part of being a 3rd grader at Eagle Cove School (, Capri Suns comes with it.  We are the collectors & counters of the juice pouch.  As part of their indoctrination, before our first outting to go collect the classroom juice pouch containers, third graders watched this powerpoint I created and the video links associated.  (With SlideShare, the videos embedded in the Powerpoint don't seem to be live--hence the rectangles with X's, but you can get there by clicking the links.) 

If you are looking to earn a little extra money for your school--2 cents per pouch--check out to sign up.  You might also find this presentation helpful in educating your youngsters as you embark on Terracycle's Juice Pouch Brigade.
