“Bag-It” Movie Premiere at GA Tech Institute

Day 5 – Final day of our Plastic Awareness Week

Day 5 – Final day of our Plastic Awareness Week

Our goal was to foster a higher sense of awareness among the children and their families about the amount of plastic trash we generate. Our hopes are that children will learn early on about how harmful plastic is and they will grow up supporting change. And hopefully, they might even help their families do the same.

Day 4 of our Plastic Awareness Week

As expected, the number one item amongst all the trash was Single-Use Plastic Bags. The entire wheelbarrow was filled to capacity. The second largest group of trash is water/beverage bottles followed by food packaging i.e. fresh-fruit containers, pre-made salads and lunch trays etc. Lastly, were all the detergent bottles and yogurt cups etc.

When we asked what we could do different to make their learning more enjoyable, the only request we received was that the Plastic Awareness event needs to last an entire month, or even be something that is focused on all year long. You gotta love our youth of today 😉

Plastic Awareness Week tasks all students and families to bring in their plastic trash every day to school.
