aveda info.
caps end up as litter or trash and migrate into our rivers and oceans. Birds and other marine creatures mistake them for food with tragic results. The magnitude of this pollution problem is devastating to our oceans and wildlife.

Dear SOCCRA,

Our class is doing a recycling project on plastic bottles.

While doing research we found that the caps on plastic water bottles are a different type of plastic and they cannot be recycled together. We were wondering if it is necessary to take the caps off water bottles in order to recycle them.

If not, what do you do with the caps? Should we recycle the caps separately?

Also the little rings that are under the caps get left on the bottles. Do these need to be removed too?

Please contact us back soon with the answers to these questions.


Water Bottle Recycling 10/28

Our team continued counting & collecting the recycling in the building.

Water Bottle Recycling 10/6/10


Survey(Students & Teachers) Morgan, Maria & Ashley
Do you recycle the bottle caps too? If not, what do you do with them?
Do you make sure the bottle is empty before recycling?
Do you use a reusable water bottle?
Do you always recycle your bottle? If not, when do you throw them away?
About how many water bottles do you use in a day? Week?

Research
Contact SOCCRA - Find out about the caps/types of plastics they take Jake & Tommy
How do plastic bottle affect our environment? GOOD?BAD? Ryan & Max
Find out more about plastic recycling at SOCCRA Jake & Tommy
Statistics about the number of plastic bottles thrown away in a day? Week? Year? Ryan & Max

Collect the plastic recyclables and count every Wed. during academic labs Jordyn, Nick, Ben, Glennie, Carson, Pieter, Zoe, Nick, Kenzy, Griffen
Count the number of plastic recyclables in the trash at the end of each day? (Make a tally sheet and list of who will keep track) Ask teachers to do it.Emma, Natalie, Kenzy & Aliya
Count number of containers with water in them and with caps on.
