2013 PIW EVENT PHOTOS
PITCH-IN CANADA originated in 1967 when a group of concerned citizens decided to hold a week long event in Victoria, BC. There were growing concerns over the increasing sight of litter and marine debris in the area, so local residents gathered together to clean up the shoreline and tidal area. The event was a great success and resulted in the formation of the Outdoors Unlittered Club. Shortly thereafter, The Outdoors Unlittered Club encompassed projects across the country and formed what is now one of Canada’s oldest, not-for-profit, charitable, environmental organizations with over 500,000 volunteers.
From it’s modest beginnings, PITCH-IN CANADA is now leading a multi-faceted approach to “litter” and overall proper waste management practices. These practices include: the 4 R’s, REFUSE - REUSE - REDUCE - RECYCLE, personal responsibility, community sustainability and beautification. Through the use of education, community participation, and partnerships with the corporate and government sectors, PITCH-IN CANADA works with all Canadians interested, to maintain a clean, green and beautiful country.
