Did you know that that all BC Green Games teams are invited to a participating BC science centre for a free field trip to celebrate completed projects? You read that right—all participating teams get a free field trip for BC Green Games celebrations which kick of with Science World’s Earth Day party on April 22.

Is your school kilometers and kilometers away from a Science Centre? Well,  thanks to our sponsor partners, Encorp Pacific and their Return-It School program, we are able to offer the Return-It Trip! This prize can help get your BC Green Games team to the celebration, no matter where in the province you are!

  • What it is: a travel bursary prize for up to $3000, which you can use to help fund field trip-related travel costs.
  • Who it’s for: the Return-It trip is meant to help schools, for whom travel is prohibitively expensive, attend their free field trip to a participating BC science centre during Green Month.  
  • What we are looking for: In order to be eligible for the Return-It Trip, teams simply need to submit a project to BC Green Games. Projects that feature beverage container recycling in action or advocacy will be given preference. Registration in both programs is encouraged, but not required

Step 2: CONTACT your local Return-It Depot for account set up and pick-up services (if available). if you already have a recycling service, just request a reciept so you can record  the number of items recycled through the program!

Step 3: REPORT the number of containers your school has recycled by the end of each month to be eligible to WIN bonus prize money for your school at the end of the program! Remember – your school also keeps all deposit refunds. Last year some schools raised over $10 000!
