Apparently there’s a few litterbugs in Winnipeg that are making the city undesirable. No worries fellow Canadians! A new initiative by Downtown Biz and Take Pride have wrestled up the greatest incentive of all time: $5 Tim Hortons gift card.
They’re not blatantly saying that Timmies is the cause of the litter, but Tom Ethans, Take Pride’s executive director, said “cigarette butts – that’s 25 to 30 per cent of the litter downtown. They are not biodegradeable, they end up in rivers and lakes, and birds have died when they use them for their nests.” Pretty easy to score a couple coffees for free! Don’t litter. Make Canada beautiful.
