TTT: Plastic Bag Grab

This year I joined the SAC (Student Advisory Committee) at our school.  I must admit I was a little worried about taking on another commitment but I have really been loving it.  It also helps that there is a team of teachers tackling the work so it really isn’t that much- we each take our turn and do what we can.   The excitement in the students faces makes the time put in well worth it!

In being a part of the SAC, I really feel like I am a lot more aware of what is going on at the school.  For example, this month we are participating in the Plastic Bag Grab challenge.  Elementary schools from across Canada are challenged to collect as many plastic bags as they can for recycling from Monday, May 29 to Friday, June 2. Schools that collect the most plastic bags for recycling per student and/or show their enthusiasm for the challenge and its message on social media, are eligible to win prizes to support environmental initiatives in their school or community.

Interested? Here are some more details: (taken from their website)

  • Students collect as many carry out plastic shopping bags as they can and bring them to school from Monday, May 29 to Friday, June 2.
  • Count all the bags your school has collected and take a fun picture for your final submission.
  • Using your registration information, log-in and submit your results at plasticbaggrab.com, which includes a photo of your collected plastic bags
  • Bring your plastic bags to your local Walmart’s customer service area for recycling
  • All bags collected will be processed and used to make new products!
  • Elementary schools from across Canada are challenged to collect as many plastic bags as they can for recycling from Monday, May 29 to Friday, June 2. Schools that collect the most plastic bags for recycling per student and/or show their enthusiasm for the challenge and its message on social media, are eligible to win prizes to support environmental initiatives in their school or community.

     

Last year our school won second prize winning $1000 dollars!!! We used this to purchase a water bottle filling station.  It is fantastic and used SO much that we are entering the contest again this year with hopes of winning again!!!
