It's Easy as 1-2-3


Congratulations to Calvin Tschritter of Ste. Anne Elementary and Caitlyn Horbaty of Bernie Wolfe School - our winners of the amazing Disney Vacations!

Easy as 1-2-3, presented by Recycle Everywhere, consists of three steps: pick up at least three pieces of litter every day; record and classify the litter; dispose of the litter properly by putting it in either a recycling bin or the garbage.

Over 1200 litter logs have been received from 67 schools and over 100 individual entrants from across Manitoba. The data will be logged into a database to track the most common types of litter.

Classroom prizes have already been awarded, and two students will win airfare, hotel and tickets for a four-day stay at Walt Disney World. The two winning students are unaware of their win, which is being presented today, so it should be a great surprise! The students hail from Ste. Anne Elementary in Ste. Anne, Manitoba and Bernie Wolfe Community School in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Take Pride Winnipeg! wishes to thank its title sponsor, Recycle Everywhere, as well as Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg Foundation, North West Company, Tim Hortons, Winnipeg Airports Authority and BFI Canada for all their support.

We encourage everyone to continue the battle against litter! When you go for a walk with your family, take a bag to collect litter you find on your path. When you are fishing along a shoreline, take a bag to collect litter there. When you are driving, keep any trash inside your car and dispose of it when you get home.
