The Juicebox Project was formed in 2010 when Veronika discovered that her school’s juice boxes were not being recycled. After discovering this, Veronika started collecting the empty beverage containers from her class and one other teacher’s class, with all proceeds going towards Hope Haven Canada.
The following school year, Veronika asked the principal if she could start collecting from all the classes in the school. After the idea was approved, Veronika and a group of friends started collecting from all the classes and continued to give all the proceeds to Hope Haven Canada.
Today, The Juicebox Project continues to collect the empty beverage containers weekly and has been able to sponsor more than 85 wheelchairs for disabled children in Guatemala.
