Please join us in acknowledging these GREEN HEROES from Winding River Consolidated in Stewiacke! Joel (grade 1) and Justin (grade 3) were nominated for taking initiative and picking up the waste others chose to leave around the community near their camp - they collected OVER 3 BAGS!
These cousins spend a lot of time exploring the outdoors together and obviously take pride in keeping our environment clean! Plus, they were using their bikes to get around - an excellent way to reduce their Eco Footprint!
Stay tuned! We will be interviewing Joel and Justin on our podcast in the New Year! We can’t wait to hear all of the other ways they make a difference!
We are so proud of the GREEN initiatives by the youth in our province. If you have a GREEN HERO you would like to nominate, click here!
