Let’s make Erin a Blue Community!
Our vision for Canada is to educate our population about the harmful effects of plastic water bottle usage on our earth. This is important to us and our school community because we need to protect our shared water resources so that future generations have access to them and know how to use them sustainably. Reducing the amount of waste resulting from plastic water bottle usage is an essential part of achieving this vision.
Based on attending the EcoLeague Youth Forum on October 26, 2017, we learned about sustainability topics and skills such as fixing bikes, endangered animals, pollination, and the dangers of using plastic water bottles. To fix these issues, some actions we could take are to compost, recycle, and stop plastic water bottle usage at our school. The Forum reinforced important facts about water scarcity, which caused us think more critically about this issue. We want to contribute to saving and protecting our water resources! As part of this, we hope that by the end of the school year we can make Erin, Ontario a blue community.
