CPOC has partnered with the School Board climate action team to confront (once again! ) the use of plastic bags. We call it the BYOB (Bring your own Bag) project.
Interact (Rotary youth) Ballenas students have confirmed and Leadership Kwalicum High students are likely to join in creating some posters to provide incentives for folks to return to using their own bags for shopping. We plan to display as many posters as possible, both inside and outside the supermarkets. In addition we plan to create one or more Xmas trees decorated with attractive reusable bags outside the store.
Please email Sheri or connect through the website if you are interested in supporting the students and community groups concerned about plastic pollution on the coast.
I particularly appreciate the attitude of store manager Darcy, Save On Foods for his cooperation with us in this plastic reduction initiative.
