Make a difference! Enable your students to become role models in your community by showing your school “pitches-in” and cares about the environment.
PITCH-IN CANADA is a national non-profit charitable environmental organization dedicated to preserving and sustaining growth of our natural ecosystems and communities. During PITCH-IN Week, from April 22 to April 29, Canadians are encouraged to participate by volunteering/organizing an educational or action activity in their community, school, or business. Examples of education activities include: Litterless Lunch program, Compost Education, Energy Reduction Programs, Carbon Footprint Calculation, and Ocean Wise Awareness. Examples of action projects include: Tree Planting, Habitat Restoration, Stream Restoration, E-waste Drives, and Community Litter Clean-ups.
The most common activity is organizing a community clean-up campaign. Once you register your clean-up at pitch-in.ca, free waste and recycling bags will be sent to you to aid in your clean-up program.
PITCH-IN CANADA’s Eco-Active Schools
Does your school teach students about the importance of a clean environment? Do your teachers and students participate in environmental clean-up programs, recycling programs, or composting programs? Does your school plant trees or involve itself in habitat restoration programs? Does your school have a “litter-less” lunch program?
If you said yes to one or more of these questions then your school is eco-Active, and you qualify to be in the eco-Active School Program – at no cost!
