Our Public Relations, Marketing and Strategic Communication students hosted a live media event this morning and donated 4,910 bags today, through the Bag it Forward: Plastic Bag Recycling Program, helping Winnipeg Harvest create food kits for families-in-need.

The donated bags are part of a joint-partnership between Simply Recycle Manitoba (Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba and Winnipeg Harvest. Members of the program, including The University of Winnipeg, collect plastic bags in receptacles placed on-site. The program aims to decrease Manitoban’s ecological footprint and help hungry families.

There are 6 bins on campus. To learn more about the Bag it Forward program, visit https://simplyrecycle.ca/plastic-bags/bag-it-forward/
