Where do your plastic bags go? Canada recycles just 9% of its plastics with the rest dumped in landfill and incinerators or tossed away as litter.
To spread awareness of the environmentally harmful effects and re-purpose the plastic bags, Burnaby Neighbourhood House (BNH) is collecting all CLEAN plastic bags and you can drop them off at BNH North House.
Come to our crocheting workshop with Shirley every Monday from 2:30-4:30 pm and learn how to crochet these bags into other useful items while emphasizing the importance of recycling these bags in our community.
Please help to spread the awareness and recycle your single-use bags!
For more information, please see our poster.
