A single act for recycling paper and knowledge for young people returning to school
An initiative from daily paper Métro, Cascades Inc. and Montreal’s transit corporation (STM), Un métro qui nous est propre, a project presented on March 9, 2005 at McGill metro station, raised metro users’ awareness of the importance of recycling their Métro newspapers and the feeling of shame that can be felt by those for whom reading is a barrier.
More than 200 recycling bins were installed in Montreal metro stations in order to recycle used newspapers. The Literacy Foundation receives the profits generated by the recovery of tonnes of paper, and these will be used to fund the Info-Alpha “front-line” service (1-800-361-9142). This support will help more young people aged 16–30 recycle their knowledge and thus return to school.
Recycle your Métro newspaper and help young people returning to school renew their knowledge!
In its concern to contribute to the development and enhancement of well-being in daily life, Académie Impact was partnering with the literacy cause to present a series of 10 smart bookmarks.
