The Global Club

The Global Club is students Grade 4-8 at Ecole Dickinsfield School. We made a survey to see how people felt about the ban before it started and how they're feeling about it now. Akshaya feels it was good to make the bag ban because it helps the environment. Casey's glad that he doesn't see any more plastic bags floating around his neighbourhood.

Fort McMurray, home of 100,000 and a reputation for "Dirty Oil-sands", is now a leader in North America with its Single Use Bag By-Law. On Sept. 1, 2010 all stores (grocery, retail) except for pharmacy, restaurants and liquor stores were prohibited from giving out single use bags. The goal is to reduce garbage.
