Spring Cleaning for a Cause: Eco Eagles and Play EH are Teaming Up!

Spring is in the air and if you’ve been binge watching Marie Kondo it’s time to purge the things that no longer bring you joy!

Eco Eagles and Play EH! are joining forces to help the environment and recycle items to raise money for the playground revitalization.

How you can make a difference

Before April 30th:

Drop off cell phones, smartphones, rechargeable cell phone batteries, pagers and accessories (charges, headsets, headphones) into the drop box located in the school’s front hall.

Donate bags of clothing, shoes (tied together), belts, purses, hand bags and soft bags throughout the month of April.

Between April 1-18th:

We will also be collecting plastic bags for recycling.

How Eco Eagles are supporting Play EH!

For every device recycled our school will earn $1 and the school in Ontario with the highest number of devices recycled per student will win an additional $500.

Clothing donation bags will be weighed and Earl Haig will be paid the global market price for used textiles.

Keep it going!

Students of Earl Haig will continue their annual spring clean up tradition outside too! Please save the dates and join us for:

  • City of Toronto Neighbourhood Clean up on April 26
  • Shoreline Clean Up on May 10

There are lots of ways to help and teach our students to be citizens of the environment. Consider hosting a Garage Sale on June 9th (the Danforth East Garage Sale day) and donate your proceeds to Play EH – perhaps the kids have some toys to purge! Contact PlayEH2019@gmail.com for Garage Sale signage and we would be happy to help you promote your sale location!
