Though this year we limited numbers and had a smaller event, this did not deter our community and in 3 hours across 5 volunteer groups we collected more than 60 full bags of rubbish and several bags of plastic. Here at BIS HCMC we are already working on reducing the waste that is produced by the school with our #2020PlasticPledge to ban all single use plastics on all of our campuses. This is just one step along that journey: our student volunteers separated the plastic waste that can be recycled and our CleanUp D2 and Precious Plastic teams have been processing the plastic this week. We have a goal to start turning this plastic waste into new items before the end of this term!
Of course, the clean-up was also a House Event with points awarded to Saigon, Dalat, Hue and Hanoi for members participation, and extra points for bringing family and friends. Overall, Dalat House had the most participants on the day and at home and have begun the year with an early lead!
