The Great Plastic Bag Challenge

EJ Sand will be participating in the great plastic bag challenge starting April 4th in partnership with Walmart.

Students and staff are encouraged to bring in plastic bags (the kind you get at grocery stores).  Do not bring milk bags, dry cleaning bags, or plastic packaging. The deadline is Thursday, April 26.

The plastic bags will be re-purposed by compressing them into pods that are then used for research.  Schools across York Region are participating in this challenge as an eco initiative. The prizes are awarded to those schools who are most creative with their collections as well as how many bags are collected.

The EJ Sand Eco Team will be providing more details and information on this challenge and with keep you updated.  Good Luck on the challenge!
