    1. #WhaleFact: In addition to less plastic, less waste in general is great for the environment, plus it makes maintaining our landfill less expensive!  Try to throw away only items that can’t be donated, reused, recycled, or composted. You’ll flip when you see how empty your trash can is when you take it down to the curb!  Speaking of takedowns, Killer Whales have been known to hunt Great White Sharks and even moose, but there’s no evidence of an Orca attacking a polar bear.


    1. The whale is here! This week SHS will be visited by Flippy the Whale, an art installation that demonstrates the dangers plastic poses to marine mammals and other sea life.  Check it out in front of the building starting today and be listening during announcements for whale facts and tips for reducing your plastic waste.
