While the Illinois Lottery strives to maximize revenue for the Common School Fund and Capital Improvements, we also strive to make Illinois a better place for you and your family. For this month, we wish to highlight the strides we take to make everyday Earth Day.
To keep our carbon footprint small, all Lottery instant tickets are printed on fully recyclable paper. To make that footprint even smaller, players now have the option play completely paperless when buying their Powerball, Mega Millions, or Lotto tickets online or on the mobile app. In the past, the Lottery has supported Friends of the Park, Earth Day Clean-Up Event and the 5k for Earth Day through Green Dot Environmental.
Our community support does not stop at supporting the earth; our partnerships reflect the wide variety of interests, cultures, and hopes of the people in Illinois. Take a look at some of our recent past and upcoming events:
