The Boston Terrier Rescue Canada is kind to dogs… and the environment! Congrats to this organization for winning the 2018 “Recycling Revolution” contest.

Last year, the Hain Celestial “Recycling Revolution” contest was launched as a way to motivate organizations, schools, families and individuals across Canada to reduce their environmental footprint. They were invited to participate in one of five free recycling programs, competing with other entrants by collecting recyclable packaging from various participating companies. The winner? A dog rescue!

Boston Terrier Rescue Canada (BTRC) collected the most pieces of flexible food packaging waste during the contest period. They won a bench made from recycled materials, as well as $300 in TerraCycle points that are redeemable for cash payment to their organization.

“Boston Terrier Rescue Canada loves collecting items for TerraCycle Canada’s various recycling programs,” says volunteer Patti Johnson. “Since our volunteers are spread across Canada, this type of fundraiser allows them to participate no matter where they live. It’s an awesome bonus that we get to help the environment while raising funds for BTRC.”
