Ms Bonnie Calanchini works with Lower School Inclusion for grades 2-3 and is also the Roots and Shoots Coordinator. Over the summer she has been volunteering with Plastic Free Seas to help collect over 2 tonnes of microplastic pollutants (from infill from an artificial pitch, you know those little black rubber balls on the football pitch?) that drained into the sea and are covering a beach in Discovery Bay. This spill has called attention to addressing this problem across Hong Kong.
She is also taking part in the collection of contact lens casing, to ensure they are responsibly recycled as these are rarely recycled correctly.
If you would like to learn more about these initiatives and get involved then don’t hesitate to reach out to Ms Calanchini at firstname.lastname@example.org
