Rosser School enrolled in MMSM Bag Up Manitoba, a program of Take Pride Winnipeg. Since the fall of 2008, elementary schools in Manitoba have collected nearly ten million plastic bags for recycling into free Frisbees, bird houses, planter boxes, bird feeders and benches for their schools.
This year Rosser School students collected and counted 23596 bags! WOW!!
The goal of this challenge is to teach students to do more to reduce their waste and consider reusing, recycling and remanufacturing options. Students are asked to collect as many plastic shopping bags as possible and bring them to their school for recycling.
