Equivalent of 4000 shopping bags saved in 15 weeks!

Since implementing the soft plastic recycling bins at the beginning of Term 2, the Single Use Plastic Free Team has been tallying the total weight that we have been recycling. We would like to inform you all that as of last week, our school has recycled over 20 kilograms of soft plastic!

To put that in perspective, the weight of a plastic shopping bag is about 5 grams. That means we have stopped the equivalent of 4000 shopping bags worth of plastic from entering landfill and the environment!
