The fight against single-use plastics at SBP has begun, and now each group can be a part of it, too. The Green Bees, an organization promoting a healthy, green environment at SBP, has announced the Green Bee Competition.

For this competition, each group, in light of the coming season of Lent, is being tasked to come up with a poster encouraging “giving-up” the use of single-use plastics.

“Right now, we are doing a poster contest – all groups will participate in it,” said Luis Narvaez SY, a Green Bee member and one of the students leading the effort. “The idea is for the school to cut down on its use of plastics. We want to encourage everyone to use reusable materials.”

Groups have from Monday March 4 to the end of the week, Friday March 8, to design a poster about the single-use plastic its members have agreed to “give up.”

Posters will be turned in on Friday, March 8 (by the end of the school day) to either of the following Green Bees: Ms. Stephanie Kranz, Ms. Noreen Connolly, Luis Narvaez or Joshua Viveros. “We are doing this because we care,” Narvaez said.  “Anything affecting the environment affects us, as well.”

From March 11-15, the posters will be up for vote on the SBP Facebook page.

The group that earns the most likes for its poster will win the competition and, of course, home-baked treats!

Groups have a chance now to make a change at SBP and the world beyond.
