In partnership with Take Pride Winnipeg, MMSM is challenging students to collect as many plastic shopping bags as possible and bring them to school for recycling.
In previous years, students in approximately 90 urban and rural schools collected more than 450,000 bags over a two-week period! This year, more than 100 schools are expected to participate.
The goal of the Plastic Bag Roundup Challenge is to inspire students to reduce their impact on the environment. Information will be sent to schools in late September. For further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (204) 956-7590 ext. 203.
