MEMS Kids Host Bottle & Can Drive to Clean Up Earth’s Oceans
Third grade students at Manchester Elementary Middle School are teaming up with the school’s Recycling Squad and Discount Beverage to collect redeemable cans and bottles, with a mission to help clean up the world’s oceans through 4Ocean. All of the proceeds they earn from the Drive will be dedicated to this global movement that is actively removing trash from the world’s oceans and coastlines and inspiring individuals to work together for the cause. Hundreds of thousands of sea creatures and their marine habitats are harmed by ocean plastic every year. Every 20 dollars 4Ocean receives goes on to pull about a pound of plastic out of sea waters. You can read more about it by going to the website at 4ocean.com. You can help by by bringing your redeemables to Discount Beverage through June 8 – World Ocean Day. Be sure to let them know that you’d like to donate them towards the MEMS Drive. They’re also collecting cans and plastic – not glass – at the School.
