Social action taken by two students concerned about BNS trash led to a school-wide "trash" awareness day...
Every room's trash and recycling pails were placed upside down in the hallways. Staff and students had to initial their names on a chart each and every time they had to throw "away" or recycle something, And they had to walk to the central recycling area in the hallway to do so.
What follows is a time line of events
leading up to May 2nd's No Trash Day.
