Clark Leadership Project Collects Halloween Candy Wrappers for "Trick or Trash" Project

Day after day, more and more students are becoming aware of recycling and its benefits to our planet. What students have learned through this Leadership Project is how important recycling our Trick or Treat trash is to our economy. They have learned recycling is vital to what is called the “circular economy”, a system that is designed to phase out pollution and waste and phase in products and solutions that have longer life spans and multiple uses. Not only is it important for students to understand the principles of “circularity”, but it is also motivating for them to know what new products can come from their own recycling efforts!
