The William Floyd High School Student Government has developed a fundraising campaign to align with the newly-enacted plastic bag law instituted by the Suffolk County Legislature, which requires consumers to pay five cents per plastic bag in an effort to reduce the use and impact of carryout bags throughout the county.
So to help address the new law, Student Government members along with their advisors Luciana LiCavoli-Dean and Julie Fortier, have created a “Go Green With Floyd” reusable tote bag, which will help shoppers reduce pollution while showing off their Floyd pride.
“We are excited to have a fundraiser that not only enables the Student Government to undertake the many activities throughout the school year that benefit all William Floyd High School students, but also one that supports environmental and county initiatives on a more global scale,” said Ms. LiCavoli-Dean and Ms. Fortier.
Tote bags cost $3 each and are available for purchase through any Student Government club member. Proceeds will go toward supporting Student Government activities.
