The 3rd Annual Small Planet Clean-Up Contest is on now and goes until April 30th. Last year’s contest had 157 entries who cleaned up thousands of kilograms of garbage in our area and won over $2000 in cash prizes.

Thanks to our amazing sponsors, the 3rd annual event will have over $3000.00 in cash prizes! Our goal is to have the entire Campbell River and Comox Valley Regional District and surrounding forests cleaned up in 6 weeks time!

1st prize – $1500
2nd prize – $750
3rd prize – $300
as well as $50 for the top children’s clean ups and gift certificates for the runners up.
Bonus points will be awarded for entries who must overcome obstacles (ie. transportation barriers, physical limitations or garbage transported across distances or other barriers, etc).

Participants will do their own clean-ups and entries will be made by taking before and after pictures of the good work everyone is doing to help our Small Planet. The Comox Valley Regional District is providing participants with tipping waiver forms (to waive the dumping fees). Please contact Tara at Small Planet Energy for a form.

The rules are simple. From now until Friday, April 30th at 6pm:
1. Take before and after photos of garbage you find and clean up
2. Submit your photos on Small Planet Energy’s website contest page or on Small Planet Energy’s Facebook page.
3. Get outside and make a positive difference by being a part of the solution today. Spread the word!

For many of us, this time of year is when we are spending a lot more time in the forest and trails around Vancouver Island, and are finding that there is a lot of garbage where there shouldn’t be.
April 22, 2022 marks the 52nd annual celebration of Earth Day, which is a global movement that now includes 193 countries around the world.
We’re hoping this challenge will continue to inspire people to help clean up the Campbell River and Comox Valley Regional District, and this beautiful Small Planet that we all care so much about!

Lastly, thank you to Pitch-In Canada for providing 400 biodegradable garbage bags to help with our clean up!
