Why did you proclaim Waste Reduction Week? What are you doing to help reduce and divert waste?: 
We are named the Greenest School in Canada (2015-2016) and awarded Hamilton's Environmental Award for 2016. As part of our mission, we have participated in Waste Reduction Week since the very beginning winning each year. We aim for zero. We have been Ontario EcoSchools Certified for 10 years. The last four years Platinum. Reducing waste including banning the one time use plastic water bottle has made our students and staff eco friendly responsible citizens in our city. We have been recognized locally and provincially for our eco efforts. Promoting and participating in Waste Reduction Week and Plastic Grab Bag campaigns have created an awareness that is contagious and impacts our families and outer community. We live green and these types of activities makes us more committed to make a positive difference in our community and world.
