After meeting marine biologist Jamie Coleman and seeing the impact of plastic on the environment, students and faculty at Campbell-Savona Junior-Senior High School knew they had to take action.
To help reduce single-use plastic bottles students are selling reusable Nalgene bottles with the picture of a fur seal pup and the slogan “we can do better.”
Bottles can be bought online for $15 on the Heal Club website, where you can also see PSAs created by the students.
The money raised from the bottles will go towards buying reusable metal utensils and a trash can that will magnetically catch them if they’re inadvertently thrown away.
For now, students are learning what they can recycle with the hopes of cutting down an estimated 3,000 pounds of plastic that’s thrown away every year at the school.
