Upcylcing Our Way to a Better Future


The Photography and Graphic Arts program along with other environmentally conscious Centennial Collegiate students developed a plan to reduce plastic and fabric waste in our school and community.


Our plan is to make environmentally friendly changes within our program and school.
Step 1: A cartridge free printer. We purchased an Ecotank system which will decrease yearly plastic waste.
Step 2: The second part of our plan was to implement upcycling to reduce clothing waste. Students brought in clothing from home to revive with tshirt transfers, silkscreen and vinyl designs.

Reflection & Celebration

The popularity of our initiative has spread through the student body of Centennial, increasing enrollment and a flow of students asking to use our equipment to upcylce clothing of their own. We are proud of the steps we are taking towards sustainability and reducing waste.
