The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and Take Pride Winnipeg! introduced a new anti-litter on Wednesday meant to encourage citizens not to litter.
The BIZ’s Metro Enviro Man shared his “101 Reasons Not to Litter” list in front of 246 Portage Avenue.
“Downtown Winnipeg is clean, green and inviting, let’s keep it that way,” the BIZ said in a release. “It’s easy to forget how our actions can have an impact — but when you remember to throw your trash or cigarette butts in a receptacle, you’re helping make the community more vibrant, welcoming, and enjoyable for everyone.”
Starting November 7 and ending December 5, Metro Enviro Man will be collecting your pledges to not litter downtown with your reasons why — with each pledge judged by the public for a chance to win 1 of 3 downtown entertainment prizes valued at $100 each.
Metro Enviro Man will also reveal one of his many “101 Reasons Not to Litter” online on the BIZ’s Facebook and Twitter every week throughout November. He’s asking participants to spot these reasons downtown on garbage bins, signage on the street, or on cigarette receptacles, for a chance to win prizes.
