LA’s BEST and the ACC educate students on plastic recycling

LA’s BEST has teamed up with the American Chemistry Council (ACC) for a second year to rally thousands of students to transform the way they think about recycling and their health. Students will embark on the “Go H2O!” challenge to learn about the benefits of recycling and the importance of drinking water.

Eighty-nine LA’s BEST school sites across Los Angeles are participating in the “Go H2O!” Challenge through November 12. Students are challenged to drink one bottle of water each afternoon and increase their recycling knowledge through educational games and tips. To support this effort, ACC is donating 15,000 reusable plastic water bottles to participating schools and providing educational materials to support the recycling lessons.
