Heritage Woods Secondary’s Environment Club

October 7, 2019

The Environment Club at Heritage Woods Secondary  went above and beyond to reach their wider community with their recycling knowledge.

Realizing that making a big impact would require outreach to the broader community, 35 passionate students in the Heritage Woods Environment Club spread their recycling message of ‘Know Where It Goes, Think Before You Throw’ through an entertaining video about the new district-wide sorting bins. They were able to divert 21,600 beverage containers from the landfill and engage approximately 32,000 students in nearly 70 schools.

Heritage Woods Secondary plans to use their 1st place award of $5,000 to expand its school garden, and develop a biodegradable or reusable container program for its cafeteria.
