Bond's Green Program

    Bond's Green Program, co-ordinated by Chloe Luk, is now starting a new initiative for recycling used writing instruments. Accepted waste is as follows:

  • Pens and caps
  • Mechanical pencils
  • Markers and caps
  • Highlighters and caps
  • Permanent markers and caps  

The waste will be collected every few weeks by our volunteers and dropped off at a participating Staples location. Staples has partnered up with Terracycle, a company that works to recycle materials that are generally difficult to recycle. Terracycle turns the recycled materials into new recycled products to be sold.  Please feel free to visit their website at www.terracycle.ca to learn more.

We have been saving cardboard boxes over the past few months to convert into pen collection boxes. The goal is to have a box for each classroom. Your co-operation is very much appreciated.
