Brookview Build with Bags

During the month of October, Iowa Grocery Industry and Metro Waste Authority are teaming up with Brookview, and other local schools, once again for the Build with Bags School Challenge!  This partnership helps teach kids about our environment and promotes plastic bag recycling.  Another component of the challenge is to encourage the use of reusable shopping bags.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Bring your used, clean plastic shopping bags to Brookview and place them in the Build with Bags box in the entryway near the office.  Although this contest takes place only during the month of October, Brookview chooses to promote recycling year-round by collecting plastic shopping bags all year.
  2. Every time you use a reusable shopping bag at Hy-Vee, Dahl’s, Fareway or Wal-Mart, tell the checker to credit your bag use to Brookview Elementary.
