Plastic Bag Grab Challenge
Grade 6 Students from Birchmount School in Moncton have made a commitment to take care of the environment by launching the Plastic Bag Grab Challenge. This project was created to encourage people of the community to reduce their plastic consumption.
The students have started collecting plastic bags to get them out of our community. They bring all the bags they’ve retrieve to Walmart to have them recycled. Their end goal is to ban plastic bags in Moncton.
Listen to the full interview with a few of these student on CBC’s Information Morning with Jonna Brewer. CBC also had a great article about a school in Amherst who wanted to raise pollution awareness with a plastic bag mural (see image below).
