Earth Day 2009: Tech it Away

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Today I’ll be out and about around town using a Camry Hybrid to get around, thanks to @ToyotaCanada. I have a few destinations and I’ll be blogging throughout the day with updates on the events. The first stop on my Earth Day tour of Vancouver today is King George Secondary in the West End.

Tech it Away - Earth Day

The high school is participating in Best Buy’s “Tech it Away” event where you can bring in your electronic goods for recycling.

    Happy Earth Day Everyone!

    The elementary school I work at is also having an electronics drive all this week. They are assigning points to each items, and having a contest between each classroom. Most points wins. I just wish I had something to participate with! I dont have any old electronics, I have already properly recycled and disposed of them!
