Thank you so much for all who have donated so far. We’ve raised $1,200, but we still have a way to go. Make sure you donate today.
I’d like to share a little bit more about what I do with Binners’ Project. When we’re on-site at events, my role is to make sure that everyone is recycling properly. I am happy to teach the binners and the public something they might not have known yet.
I have to make sure that the binners dealing with the waste are doing so safely, and that means making sure they have the gear they need. As one of the two Community Coordinators, I am keeping the binners on track. I am starting to be known as the “strict lady”, which I think is a good thing!
Just $20 covers the cost of safety gear for a team of 5 binners during an event. This includes gloves, waste-pickers, rain gear, and flashlights.
It’s quite amazing to see the binners getting out of the Downtown Eastside, some of them haven’t done so for many years. With new skills, a clean professional outfit, and the proper gear, they are able to confidently help the public with their waste. And what’s even more great is that the families, children and adults, listen to them! It makes me happy to see Binners’ Project helping to decrease the stigma around binning.
I’m getting really excited to kick-off our events, but it would be great to start the season knowing that our costs are covered. Help us reach our goal of raising $4,000 by donating here.
Your support means so much to us.
