As you may know, the month of April is Earth Month and we are excited to be part of something so meaningful. April is now set aside for an exposition on all things that revolve around our Earth. We become more aware, more educated and take action in bettering our planet.
During Earth Month on the 22nd each year we acknowledge Earth Day. Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world. Over six million Canadians—including nearly every school-aged child—participate in an Earth Day activity in their communities. In celebration of this special day, many organizations throughout Canada partner up to create new and exciting initiatives. It is celebrated all over the world by over a billion participants.
Founded in 1990, Earth Day Canada is a national environmental charity. They offer free, year-round, award-winning programs which help to educate and inspire Canadians of all backgrounds, age groups and sectors to reach local environmental solutions. Their mission is to encourage and celebrate environmental action, respect and behavior change that minimizes our impact on the earth. Go to their website to find out more information about their programs: https://earthday.ca
To show our support and appreciation to Earth Month, ERA will be offering free pickups! This Earth Month challenge will be carried out for the entire month of April 2017! Also, based on the number of items collected, our top 5 donors will have a tree planted on their behalf through ERA’s partnership with Tree Canada.
TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR EARTH MONTH CHALLENGE, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS:
- Collect unwanted electronic equipment (if you’re not sure what we accept please contact us)
- Take a photo of the equipment with staff members and send the photo to [email protected]. If you are uncomfortable or not permitted to send a photo, mention the donation on social media and tag ERA (Facebook @ElectronicRecyclingAssociation or Twitter @DonateRecycleIt). Not sure what to say? Contact us and we’ll help you out.
- Once we receive your email or social media notification, we will contact you to arrange the complimentary pickup at your convenience.
