Partnership with DreamRider Productions

Category: School Recycling Support
Time frame: 2023
Location: British Columbia
Status: Completed

DreamRider Productions  is a charity that provides environmental education for school-aged children. Funding provided to DreamRider supported the tour in 2023 of its Zero Heroes live show in 70 elementary schools of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland. Approximately 21,000 students and over 1000 teachers and staff attended the shows. For the occasion, food and beverage cartons were incorporated into the performances which aimed to inspire students to become “recycling superheroes” both at school and at home. The partnership also included surveying K-12 schools throughout the province on their carton recovery practices. A total of 143 participated in the survey. The results helped to identify pathways to improve carton recovery in B.C. schools.
