The Plastic Bag Grab challenge is a waste reduction program for elementary schools across Canada that engages schools and students on the 3Rs hierarchy: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
For two years, the challenge has encouraged students to collect as many single-use plastic bags from their homes and communities as they can for recycling.
Now in its third year, the program will focus on reduce and reuse – the most important step in the 3Rs hierarchy. As such, the challenge will reward schools that encourage and promote ideas and solutions that result in reducing how many bags are used and wasted in their communities.

St. Francis of Assisi School is participating in the Plastic Bag Grab Challenge again this year.  Please send your plastic bags to the school throughout the month of April.  Many thanks.
