Patrick Henry High School Ecology Students Recycle T-Shirts

Six people stand and two people kneel while holding canvas bags.Students in Mrs. Eason’s third period Ecology class at Patrick Henry High School are recycling used T-Shirts to make reusable shopping bags.  

Plastic shopping bags can last thousands of years in landfills and are often discarded after a single use.  Americans use more than 300 plastic bags per person each year.  Many of these bags end up in the oceans where they pose a threat to marine wildlife.  In Ecology, students focus on peoples interactions with the environment.  These students are trying to do their part to make a positive impact in the area that they live and work.  What an easy way to help out the environment.
