Celebrate Earth Day Showdown with Ellice Recycle

Earth Day 2014 is coming up on April 22nd, and Ellice Recycle is in full support of making our local environment a better place. How are you planning to celebrate?

More than six million Canadians participate in Earth Day each year. Earth Day Canada was founded in 1990 as a national environmental charity, with programs that happen throughout the year to educate, inspire, and celebrate environmental respect and action. Earth Day is now a global event that occurs annually on April 22nd, and organizations and networks worldwide are working year-round to raise awareness and support action to create a cleaner, safer planet.

Don’t miss out on the Earth Day Showdown with Ellice Recycle! On April 22nd, we will be working with various local businesses to help clean up the city of Victoria by collecting garbage and recycling it for proper disposal.

This video has some context explaining a bit more about the Showdown:

The pickup is our third annual Showdown with the Victoria Sustainable Tourism Alliance (ViSTA). Participants will pick up garbage from one minute before noon until one minute before 1 p.m. They will receive one point per piece of garbage they collect, and the total count of a team’s garbage could win them awards.

Stay tuned for more details.

Here are three other Earth Day events:

  • Join the 10,000 Tree Challenge: By Earth Day on April 22nd, Tree Canada is hoping to receive enough donations to plant 10,000 trees, in their 10K Tree Challenge. Offer your contribution for a greener tomorrow by donating here. Raise awareness by tweeting with the hashtag #TC10KTrees.
  • Free Admission at the Robert Bateman Centre Gallery: In expression of the Centre’s love of nature, the Robert Bateman Centre here in Victoria is offering free admission to their gallery all day on Earth Day, April 22nd.
  • Creatively United for the Planet: Don’t miss out on the annual Earth Day festival, Creatively United for the Planet, on April 25th and 26th. Robert – of the Robert Bateman Centre – will be speaking on “The Hearth of the Matter” on April 26th, and lots of other fun and educational events will be taking place – click here for the festival schedule.

Happy Earth Day!
