Welcome to Waste Reduction Week


More than two million plastic bags collected for recycling! 

Elementary schools from across Canada were challenged to collect as many plastic bags as they could for recycling during Earth Week (April 18 - 22). Top schools in each province and territory that collect the most plastic bags for recycling are eligible to win cash prizes that can be used for schools’ environmental initiatives! 400 schools took part, and winners will be announced in June.
