GCA 4-H Club speaks to Police Jury in regard to Water Bottle Project

During the regularly scheduled meeting of the Jackson Parish Police Jury held on Tuesday, July 19th, members of the Gracepoint Christian Academy 4-H Club opened the session by giving a presentation about their award winning, water bottle recycling program, now entering it’s second year.

Last year the GCA 4-H team was awarded Jackson Parish Community Service Award at the annual 4-H banquet. By stopping to use all plastic water bottles at the school it was estimated that 11,000 less plastic water bottles were taken the landfill which saved the school roughly $1,400.00 and reduced the amount of non-biodegradeble material in the landfill. 

This year the GCA 4-H Club members hopes to do even better and that others schools, businesses and organizations will join in their effort to reduce the amount of non-biodegrable items that are used and then later disposed of.
