Earth Day 2018 - Starting a new tradition

Riversdale conducted a community clean up yesterday in recognition of Earth Day

With the snow finally beginning to melt there are many areas around the Crowsnest Pass that could use some care. In honour of Earth Day on April 22nd, the Riversdale team conducted a community cleanup of 20th Ave in Blairmore. In only an hour, our mighty clean up team filled 21 bags of garbage! Along with the usual assortment of waste, we found eight mittens, a baby sock, a stuffed Big Bird, an old railway sign, two promotional signs and an original iPod…

The focus of Earth Day 2018 was on ending plastic pollution. Our friends from Crowsnest Conservation Society put together this poster to educate and inspire all of us to use less plastic and be mindful of our consumption of waste. 

We look forward to continuing this new tradition next year!
