In 2017, Ranger Campbell, Tom and Izzy made a video to support ‘Plastic Straw Free Rangiora. The video has won a number of national competitions, the first of which was 'The Outlook for Someday' Enviroschools Sustainable Future Award. Recently is has won yet another competition in the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival, earning North Loburn School a $200 voucher that will be going towards the schools enviro projects. They went to the local shops in Rangiora and inquired about their use of plastic straws and what alternatives could be used. Many local cafes are now plastic straw free. The message of the video is simple - just say "No straw please" and help cut down on single use plastic. Check out the video here "Straw Free Rangiora"
