St. Isidore Catholic School in north Kanata has developed a passion to keep the world clean and students and staff are taking the initiative to reduce plastic in landfills and raise awareness about its negative effects.

Ottawa does not have the facilities to properly recycle plastic grocery bags. This means the bags end up in landfills where they leach toxins and take up to 1,000 years to decompose.
