Tyrrell offers free admission with donation of old electronics on Earth Day
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It’s a great opportunity to clean out those stockpiles of old and outdated devices such as cellphones, MP3 players, old cameras, or other devices to be properly disposed of at approved recycling facilities, while also gaining entrance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.
