Botlecap benches donated to O.J.N.

On Wednesday, Jan. 8, two benches made from plastic bottle caps were placed on either side of the entrance of O.J. Neighbours (OJN) Elementary School.

Each year, eight million tons of plastic enter the world’s oceans and eco system, and this number continues to grow. When the Kaleidoscope Kids, a group of high ability learners at OJN heard this fact, they were shocked.

“This year, my third and fourth grade kids started talking about the plastic pollution problem because they felt shocked after they learned about what was happening with our oceans and our eco-systems and how much plastic is going into our landfills and our oceans. They felt powerless and so we wanted to do something.,” said Anne Eddingfield, the High Ability Teacher at OJN.
