Win an amazing prize!

To get the nation squashing their empty cartons before recycling, we’re asking you to show us: how do you squash yours? We’ve launched a YouTube competition to search for the most imaginative way to squash milk and juice cartons before recycling!

From sitting on them, flattening them with a space hopper, to the local rugby team squashing them in a scrum…check out these YouTube videos to see how other people squash their Tetra Pak cartons!

Squashing your cartons frees up space in carton collection banks, recycling bags and boxes, making it easier to recycle your cartons. This means we can get at least three times more cartons in the bins and collection vehicles if they are squashed – taking trucks off the road, which is better for the environment!

Show us how you squash your paper-based cartons, such as those made by Tetra Pak, and you could be in with a chance of winning either:

  • a ‘chance of a lifetime’ place on an exciting international environmental adventure – from a wildlife conservation trip with elephants in South Africa to volunteering with turtles in Panama
  • or Eco TV, 50 hot DVDs and a supply of wine or smoothies in Tetra Pak cartons!

The best bit? The winner gets to choose which prize they want!

Check out our handy video with everything you need to know about how to win the competition. You’ve got until 1st November 2009, when the ‘top ten’ will be
short-listed. The short-listed videos will be uploaded onto this site for the public to vote for the winner!
