Ready to make a positive impact on the environment in your community? We have 25 Butt Blitz team coordinators set up in different cities across Canada on a mission to help clean up harmful cigarette butt litter while also raising awareness and educating their communities. Now, we just need volunteers to join them! The month-long Butt Blitz event will run from April 1st – 30th, and through teams of 10 local volunteers, we hope to reach the goal of picking up 1 million butts from the environment across Canada! Usually, our Butt Blitz event is a one-day event where everyone gathers together to pick up butts, but the pandemic has changed everything. This year we’ll be picking up independently, and staying connected virtually. We will provide all the necessary supplies as well as safety training to ensure everyone participating stays safe. We are looking for volunteers to take part in Barrie, Ontario where Nicole Dewar is the team coordinator. Please respond to this posting if you’re interested in joining the Barrie Team! Volunteer responsibilities: – complete virtual training – attend virtual team meetings – pick up cleanup supplies and equipment – reach the goal of picking up 5,000 cigarette butts to help reach the team goal of 50,000 butts – submit cleanup results through an online form after each cleanup – drop collected butts off to team your coordinator for recycling The amount of time committed over the month may vary depending on how many “hotspots” you come across while cleaning up. Don’t worry, we’ll give you some tips on the best places to go. We expect that volunteers will go out to do a cleanup once or twice per week. Collected cigarette butts will be recycled through TerraCycle Canada. All participants must be over 19 years of age. After responding to this opportunity you will be connected with your local coordinator. Virtual training will take place in March.
