Policy

 

 
From April 18 - 22, 2016, elementary schools across Canada were challenged to collect as many plastic bags for recycling as possible from their homes and in their communities. More than 400 schools from across Canada enthusiastically took part, with many of them sharing their plastic bag collection adventures on social media with #PlasticBagGrab / #défisacs. 
 
In total, schools collected 2,279,601 bags for recycling! That's equal to 18,000 kg of plastic bags that won't be heading to landfill!
