EVENTS: Presents – Green Tracks

Did you know that British Columbians dropped off almost one billion beverage containers to Return-It depots last year? To celebrate this fact, and Return-It introduced Green Tracks – a collaboration between music and recycling.

The challenge – getting three of our province’s favourite bands: Hey Ocean!, Shred Kelly, and Yukon Blonde to create instruments out of recycled materials and use them to perform a song. The winning band will receive $3000 to donate to a local charity of their choice, with the second place band receiving $2000, and the third place band receiving $1000.

Fans were a part of the voting process and the winner will be announced this Wednesday October 7th. This is a great initiative to inspire us to consider thinking outside the box when it comes to recycling.

Although the voting process has ended, head over to to watch all of the performances and find out more about this project.
