At the ESB's February meeting, members had the great pleasure of providing Mr. Kesslar, principal at Page Primary, with the supplies his teachers will need to participate in Crayola's ColorCycle program! This program helps teach students the important role they play in protecting their environment. The ESB is very excited to see this program grow at Page! 

As we move into the new year, the Environmental Sustainability Board (ESB for short) would like to challenge all residents to STOP RECYCLING AND FOCUS ON REUSING. Below is a great clip that explains how the market has an impact on what actually gets recycled. We hope you will all help us in sharing this message!
