La Botte Trouée Theatre
“Kick your can!”
Consignaction supports the efforts of the Théâtre de la Botte Trouée, which is launching its fundraising campaign under the theme “Kick your can!” Every Saturday from May 2, in several neighbourhoods in Montreal, members of the young troupe will walk the streets to collect containers from citizens.
“Instead of throwing cans and bottles that are stored in the recycling or garbage can, we will pick them up directly from your home, on the sidewalk”, says one of the young actors in his video.
The funds raised will be used to create a play for young audiences that focuses on the environment. The young troop has set a goal of collecting 20,000 cans, which is about the equivalent of $1,000.
To encourage these young people and contribute to this campaign, simply register by filling out the form here. Consignaction will collect the collected containers and hand over the money to those responsible.
“We are pleased to be able to support La Botte Trouée’s initiative, which will allow consumers to offload the containers they have accumulated during the pandemic while serving great causes, youth and the environment,” said Normand Bisson, president of Boissons Gazeuses Environnement and responsible for the Consignaction programme.
