Take Pride Winnipeg!, and Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba would like to thank everyone for making the 2010 Bag Up Manitoba — Plastic Bag Round-Up Challenge an absolute success. The program has grown enormously, and for the first time, the program was expanded to schools throughout Southern Manitoba and also to Flin Flon. The overwhelming response from schools across the province is evidence that students care – they care for their community, their province and their environment.
Total number of schools participating in the city of Winnipeg: 92
Total number of schools participating out side the city of Winnipeg: 41
Total number of bags collected: 475, 924
