Recycling Baggies

Decorate bins to designate plastic-bag Recycling.

The Problem

Only 12% of plastic bags are recycled. The rest end up in landfills, or worse, the ocean.

The Solution

Set up recycling bins in your school cafeteria to prevent plastic bags from going to landfills or ending up as litter and threatening wildlife.

Wait…there’s a twist! You’ll use bins decorated with pictures of ocean animals, plus facts on how plastic pollution harms ocean wildlife and how recycling can help.
