Plastic Bag Grab Challenge

Thank you for 5 years of the Plastic Bag Grab Challenge!

From 2016 – 2020 more than 750,000 students from across Canada took action to reduce plastic waste in their school communities while collecting more than 65 metric tonnes of single-use plastic bags for recycling.  During Earth Month, schools were challenged to learn and take action on plastics waste by reducing their use, while collecting discarded plastic bags (that cannot be reused) for recycling in their schools and beyond to be dropped at Walmart locations across Canada. Thank you to all schools that took part in the program over the years, and congratulations on your efforts to reduce plastic waste in your community.

New In-School Environmental Programming  - LEGO Replay for Schools

Circular Innovation Council (formerly Recycling Council of Ontario) has recently launched an exciting new circular economy education program for schools across Canada.  We have partnered with the LEGO Group to expand the LEGO Replay program to schools across Canada. This Winter/Spring, schools are invited to put circular economy in action by building circular creations and donating LEGO bricks through the LEGO Replay program.
