Massey Green Gives Back

Vincent Massey Secondary School's Eco Club, Massey Green, were excited to raise money to donate to World Vision. Through the sales of non-toxic plastic and stainless steel reusable water bottles we have raised $2100, enough for 21 families to have a lifetime of clean drinking water. In the process we educated students on the importance for people everywhere to have access to fresh drinking water and why our own drinking water is so precious.

Students had a lot of fun going around selling water bottles and conducted water "taste tests" where we dispelled the myth that bottled water is better than regular tap water. Some of our own teachers couldn’t tell the difference! Our school recently installed three water refill stations and we are continually working towards reducing the amount of plastic waste that the student body generates. We raised awareness about the benefits of using reusable bottles and encouraged them to stop using single-use disposable bottles.

This has been a wonderful experience for our Massey Green Eco Club members and all the students that participated. We are so grateful to have had this opportunity to impact the lives of these families at this special time of the year.
