"The Learning Centre is planning to build the first ever green house in Halifax made from recycled materials. We have collected 200 clear and green 2L pop bottles, but we need 2000 for our project. Please bring your clear or green 2L pop bottles to the learning centre. If each student brought in one bottle, we would have just enough. Thanks for your help!"
