Our school is participating in Bag up Manitoba again this year. This is a program, through Take Pride Manitoba, in which elementary schools collect plastic bags to be recycled into frisbees, bird houses, planter boxes, bird feeders and benches.
The goal of this program is to teach students to reduce their waste and consider reusing, recycling and remanufacturing. We highly recommend the use of reusable shopping bags for your daily shopping but understand that this isn't always possible.
We are asking you to help us collect plastic shopping bags for recycling. You can send any plastic shopping bags with your child to school where we will count and collect them as a team.
Thank you for your help and support. Please look in the November newsletter to see the total number of bags we have collected.
