Student Voices

Hey Owen Community,

The Eco club would like to encourage you to complete the City of Toronto’s Plastic Survey. If you wonder what the survey is about, it is a survey to see if we will ban or put a fee on single use plastic. Why should we do this survey? If we continue to use single use plastics our environment can eventually be polluted. How? The chemicals in the plastics can leak out and pollute our environment. Then eventually it will leak into our trees and grass.  

Do the survey ! We want everyone including students to complete the survey. Click here for the link
