Bulldogs & ACRD Spreading the Recycling Message & Helping Reduce Waste
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - Submitted by Alberni Valley Bulldogs
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Port Alberni, BC – For the second straight year, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and the Alberni Clayoquot Regional District have partnered to promote the importance of recycling and the need to reduce the amount of waste that goes to the landfill.  
 
Earlier this week, thirteen Bulldogs players took part in an orientation session with Janice Hill and Andy Daniel from the ACRD to prepare for delivering the recycling message to select local elementary and middle schools. In presentations that began today, the Bulldogs and the ACRD are encouraging students to take part in a Waste-Free Lunch Challenge.
 
Every day school lunches are a major source of waste in British Columbia – the average student’s lunch generates a total of 30 kilograms of waste per school per year, or an average of 8,500 kilograms of waste per school per year. Students and their parents/guardians can make a significant contribution every day to reduce the amount of waste and keep it out of our landfill.
 
Also earlier in the season, Tryg Strand, Darian Henry, Justin Georgeson, Hunter Stewart, and Bernie The Bulldog recorded several recycling tips segments that are airing locally on Shaw.  
 
"The Bulldogs bring to the program many great qualities, they are exceptional speakers and are seen as leaders by youth within the community. The Bulldogs players and organization are genuinely interested in the environment and making a difference within the community", stated Andy Daniel, the Regional District's Manager of Environmental Services.
 
“It is our goal once again to reach out to 25 different elementary and middle school classrooms,” said Bulldogs assistant coach and assistant general manager Adam Hayduk. “There are so many great local initiatives already in play to reduce, reuse, and recycle. However, the Waste-Free Lunch Challenge will give students an opportunity every week to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our local landfill. It’s a great way to make a positive impact,” added Hayduk.
 
“As players, we understand the importance of being role models for the community and for younger kids,” said Bulldogs second-year defenseman Kurt Gosselin. “We like to get involved as much as we can to make a difference in the community that has given us so much.”
