The Royal Tyrrell Mu­seum will be cel­e­brat­ing Earth Day on Fri­day by al­low­ing free ad­mis­sion to the mu­seum for any­one who brings in an old elec­tronic de­vice to be re­cy­cled.

It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to clean out those stock­piles of old and out­dated de­vices such as cell­phones, MP3 play­ers, old cam­eras, or other de­vices to be prop­erly dis­posed of at ap­proved re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties, while also gain­ing en­trance into a mu­seum in­ex­tri­ca­bly linked to the earth and its pro­tec­tion, says Mar­ket­ing and PR Di­rec­tor Car­rie-Ann Lunde.

“Many peo­ple at the mu­seum are con­scious of both the earth and so­ci­ety, so when Earth Day came up we thought this would be a great op­por­tu­nity,” said Lunde.

“I think it’s im­por­tant in what­ever job you’re in to make dif­fer­ences in lit­tle ways, and it’s awe­some mu­seum man­age­ment has given us sup­port for this ini­tia­tive.”

Earth Day is an an­nual event cel­e­brated on April 22 where events world­wide are held to sup­port en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity.

Earth Day was first cel­e­brated in 1970 and has now be­come a global ini­tia­tive with over 192 coun­tries par­tic­i­pat­ing.
