A Day Without Plastic at the Mount
Plastic Use Update:
Earth Day Initiative
On Monday following Earth Day, MSDA Environmental Club members collected and counted nearly 350 plastic items from the recycling bins around the school. On Wednesday, the school observed “A Day Without Plastic.” The goal was to reduce that number – not just today, but every day!
Although the perfect goal would be “zero plastic,” the Mount is aiming for a 50% reduction in plastic. Here are a few suggestions to help attain our goal: use refillable cups when visiting Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts; use your own bottle at the hydration station; and if you do bring or use plastic, please empty the container before discarding & remove the top before placing the item in the recycling bin.
