Reduce Your Use Design Contest


The contest is now closed. Stay tuned for the results to be announced soon. 

Litter from plastic makes an awful mess

The earth can handle many things, but this is too much stress

There’s really no excuse, we must reduce our use

Single-use waste is a fact, but how can we clean up our act?


The City of Spruce Grove is introducing a new bylaw that aims to reduce the amount of plastic contaminating our environment and you can help get the word out.

We invited young people ages 13 and under to submit artwork that shows how people can Reduce Your Use and help cut down on waste from single-use items like plastic checkout bags, polystyrene (e.g. Styrofoam takeout containers), and plastic straws.

The winning designs will be printed on a reusable bag to be handed out over the summer and may be used in waste education materials.
