Théâtre de la Botte Trouée

"Kick your can!"

Consignaction supports the efforts of Théâtre de la Botte Trouée as it launches its fundraising campaign under the theme "Kick ta can!" Every Saturday starting May 2, in several Montreal neighborhoods, members of the young troupe will roam the streets to collect refundable/returnable containers from citizens.

"Instead of throwing cans and returnable bottles in the recycling or garbage, we'll come and pick them up directly from you, on the sidewalk," mentions one of the young actors in his video.

The funds raised will be used to create a play for young audiences on the theme of the environment. The young troupe has set itself the goal of collecting 20,000 cans, roughly the equivalent of $1,000.

To encourage these young people and contribute to this campaign, all you have to do is register by filling in the form here. Consignaction will collect the containers collected and return the money to those responsible.

"We're delighted to be able to support La Botte Trouée's initiative, which will enable consumers to get rid of the containers they accumulated during the pandemic, while serving the good causes of youth and the environment," says Normand Bisson, President of Boissons Gazeuses Environnement and head of the Consignaction program.
