Plastic Bag Grab

Plastic Bag Grab

Hello Buckingham, this message is from Division 2. This post is to inform you about an event called the 2019 Plastic Bag Grab. The Bag Grab is an event where Primary and Intermediate students in our school have a competition on who gets an extra recess based on who collects the largest amount of plastic bags. We will deliver the plastic bags to Walmart, and they will recycle them. Prizes provided by the Bag Grab are a $1,000 prize going to the school and the school automatically gets entered into a draw to get a 500 dollar prize or a Trex bench. We are doing this to help the environment get back on its feet after decades of pollution since the industrial revolution. We also want to make it safer for the sea creatures because they are eating plastic bags which they think are jellyfish. Our goal is to recycle 1,000 plastic bags which means about 5 bags per student. The boxes to put your bags in will be on tables at the front of the school by the office if you ever want to drop off a bag. For more information, click here! We hope you will support us and help make a difference in the world.
