The leaves are changing color, the temperature is dropping and.. School is back in session! With this change in season it means that the Environmental Initiatives Section and the Brandon Environment Committee are busy planning for school programs. October is sustainability month and we will be hosting the 6th annual Brandon Waste Reduction School Challenge Oct.11-25th. Participating classes will be earning waste reduction points trying their best to earn the bragging rights and be Waste Reduction All stars. This successful program shared with municipalities across Canada helps kicks off environmental action within the class, school and at home. Students make a pledge to carry out an environmental action in their day to day lives during the school year. Thank you to Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba for being the platinum sponsor for this worthwhile initiative.
