Welcome to our May Newsletter.
In this edition you'll find:

  • Exciting New Sponsorship
  • Fundrazr Support
May is our busiest month of the year! The Butt Blitz has come in gone and now were packing the car to take off for Love Your Lake!
Will you join us?

The Butt Blitz Results

Most of the numbers are in! On May 5th we had 171 volunteers help pick up cigarette butts in 20 locations across Canada.
So how many butts were collected?
We're waiting on two more numbers to come in which will likely push us over last year's total of 223,354 butts collected. Way to go Canada! Thank you so much to all the coordinators and volunteers that made this happen!
All cigarette butts collected are recycled through our Butt Blitz partner TerraCycle Canada. Much better than having butts end up in a lake or landfill! 

Love Your Lake

Our Love Your Lake program launches May 26th in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Come out to beautiful wine country to join us for the first cleanup of 100. We'll be joined by the Paddle Niagara team at Queen's Royal Park at 10am.

Once again the Honda Canada Foundation has provided us with a car and gas to get around to all our cleanups! Look for the white 2018 Honda Civic with the Love Your Lake graphics at all our cleanups! Thank you Honda!
The Holiday Inn in Oakville is generously providing us complimentary accommodation while we're in their area!
TerraCycle Canada will be taking all the beach plastic and cigarette butts we find and turning them in to something new! They'll also be helping out with content and promotion throughout the program!

Love Your Lake Documentary

There's just over a week left in our crowdfunding campaign! This documentary is a huge opportunity to help us tell our story and protect Lake Ontario from litter and pollution. Visit our Fundrazr page to see the perks we have to offer and watch the trailer! Thank you SO much to everyone who has donated!

Zero Waste Kits

Thank you to all who have supported A Greener Future through the purchase of a zero waste kit! Not only are you helping the planet by creating less waste but you're also helping fund our programming and events. *HIGH FIVE*

A HUGE thank you to everyone that came out and supported us at the Zero Waste Fair in Parkdale last weekend! We were out of straw cleaners but we have some now! Use the code SUBSCRIBER for free shipping.
We're almost ready to head west and dig in, and once we start we won't stop until the end of August. Love Your Lake is a huge undertaking but it is certainly worth all the time and effort. I hope we get to see you somewhere during our journey along the Lake!
