M-S Torch Club Asks “Got Plastic?”

Our Mackenzie-Scott Torch Club completed a “Got Plastic?” service project this month, recycling hundreds of bottles and cans in an effort to help stop ocean pollution and help educate and Club members and families on the effects of pollution on sea life and the environment. Funds gathered after the cans and bottles were redeemed were donated to Heal the Bay where it will support exhibit maintenance and the ongoing education and advocacy efforts core to group’s mission.

Mackenzie-Scott recycled a total of 3,702 cans and bottles, and member Gabriel Garcia collected the most recyclables for the project. For his efforts he was awarded a tablet computer, and all participating members celebrated their success with a special “Under the Sea” party.
