Letter – 30,000 tonne challenge art contest.

Here’s a letter I received from Mr. Jeremy Twigg about an art contest coming up June 8th. Info below.

Dear Fresh Start Recycling,

I thought you’d be interested in this event on Tuesday, June 8 to highlight the success of BC’s e-waste recycling program.

BC student submissions convey impact of electronic waste

BC elementary and high school art students were challenged to portray 30,000 tonnes of e-waste, which is the amount of obsolete computers, monitors, printers and fax machines that have been recycled through our provincial e-waste program. Through drawing and sculptures, the art conveys the weight and impact e-waste can have on our planet if not recycled responsibly.

Submissions will be on display at the Harbour Centre SFU campus throughout the week, starting Tuesday, June 8, and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place entries in both poster and sculpture categories.

“I hope my project can inspire people to stop throwing out their electronics and recycle them.”
