Bag Up and Take a Seat
Can you "Bench" Press 27,000 bags??
Congratulations to all students and staff of George V school for participating in Take Pride Winnipeg`s “Bag-Up Manitoba” initiative! The “Bag-Up” program is open to all elementary schools across Manitoba, and thanks to our school's commitment to collect over 27 000 plastic bags, George V was one of 14 lucky schools to receive a park bench made of recycled materials! That’s about 1000 bags per student! The bench was presented to the school by Mr. Tom Ethans from Take Pride Winnipeg.
The “Bag-up” program has collected and recycled millions of plastic bags that might otherwise end up in landfills. These plastic bags are being remade into useful items, such as frisbees, bird-houses, and park benches. George V is proud to participate in a program that makes a difference by keeping our community a cleaner, greener place! Thank you to all who helped us achieve this goal!
