COME CELEBRATE EARTH DAY AT MEC!

As outdoor enthusiasts, we know how important it is to protect the wild spaces and beautiful places we love to explore. They are what allow us to get outside and find calm, embrace adventure, and feel alive. Come join us on Earth Day to celebrate ways in which we support the places we love! 

PLOGGING

Never heard of it? It's an "eco-friendly fitness mash-up of jogging and picking up trash" [CBC News] that originated in Sweden and has been picking up steam in Canada. If you like to run and love the environment we want you to join the crew. Tell your friends, co-workers, family, and most of all your running buddies. This is an 'otter' you can't 'refuse'!

Meet our MEC Run Crew leaders at on the MEC Victoria Bike Pation (1450 Government St) at 12:00pm to get involved.

BE PLASTIC WISE

Ocean Wise is tackling the global crisis of ocean plastic, and we need your support. Learn about the different ways that you can support your environment by reducing your impact. We'll have a representative there to tell you about the program, how you can support the initiative, and how you can get involved in fun monthly challenges that will help you make the change.

Break your plastic pattern. Protect our ocean. Sign the pledge to #BePlasticWise at ocean.org/pledge
