Changing the Landscape: One Bag At a Time


April 23, 2012 4:30 p.m. Weather: 26 degrees, sunshine, cloud, terrific wind.  Saturday, this week, marks the end of my stewardship of this particular location, Frank’s Flats, edging on South Fish Creek Recreational Association.  This afternoon was a spectacular time for heading over to the flats to case out the status of the park for my Canada-Wide Pitch-In team who will be coming out with me to celebrate my last pickin’.

Boxes: Everywhere!

As I approached on foot, I was devastated by the  absolute wreck of the slopes…strewn with empty pizza boxes and Booster Juice product boxes.  It took me multiple trips up and down the hill to retrieve all of the cardboard that evidently had been chucked while a group was in party mode.

And MORE Boxes!

It appears to me that there was some involvement with Booster Juice,  and I’m wondering if they found any of their cartons of product to be missing on one of their recent deliveries.

  1. Hello, We have addressed the Issue at the Booster Juice location. The owners and managers are aware of the situation. I gather some of the students from the school take the boxes and sit on them on the hill.

    Thanks again for your email.

    • Does this mean that the boxes will now be secured while waiting to be recycled, Tiffany? Will someone from your business go to the school and let the school know that this is not a responsible behaviour. Being ‘aware of the situation’ is only the first step. Will your company be a part of a Corporate collaboration of stewardship at the South Fish Creek Recreational Association location? I’m looking forward to hearing about the role you will take, given that your product will be so popular with the athletes, families and high school students who use the space. May I assume that, in future, you will be more responsible about your shipping cartons and that you might monitor how litter bearing your logo is impacting the area?
