THE EARLYACT CLUB
EarlyAct Plastic Bag Collection
The results are in! From November though March, Jordan families were able to recycle 238 pounds of plastics, keeping our landfills, rivers, and oceans a little bit cleaner! Although we didn't end up winning the contest, we still won a Trex flower box for our participation. Thank you to all who donated, and we hope your family decides to keep donating your thin plastics at area grocery stores on your own!
