***Dear Upper School,
Starting March 1st, a recycling bin will be placed in Senior Hall. It is part of my capstone project regarding recycling plastic bottles. In the U.S., 2,500,000 plastic bottles are being used every hour, and most of them are not being recycled. This contributes to the 80% of ocean plastic coming from land-based sources. All this plastic in the ocean is affecting wildlife, not only injuring them, but also killing them.
This is why I ask your help to make a small contribution as a community.
Please ONLY put plastic bottles in it, and do NOT put anything other in the bin.
Thank you very much for your contributions.
USED STATIONERY RECYCLING DRIVE!
Plastic waste caused by the disposal of single-use plastic is one of the largest environmental issues in our world today, making up 80% of Earth’s pollution!
If you have used stationery (such as highlighters, markers, mechanical pencils, glue sticks, paint sets, flexible packaging, and pens) from ANY BRAND, please drop them off in the Collection Bins placed throughout campus. There are bins near the science, English, math, and WL hallways. We would really appreciate your contribution! Help us stand up for this noble cause to #stopplasticwaste
For more information, please contact Rayyan Syed (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mrs. Mattsson (email@example.com). Thank you!
