17 Jan 20 Years of Making Resolutions Easy!
“New year’s resolutions.” Feel that tightening in your gut? That impending sense of guilt for another year’s resolutions already fading into distant memory?
Okay, so maybe that’s a tad dramatic. Maybe. No matter your official view of new year’s resolutions, it’s hard not to yearn for change at the beginning of a new year. Hard not to think that this will be the year when you finally ______! (fill in the blank) The problem is that most of us make it way too complicated on ourselves, get overwhelmed, and eventually fall back into our old ways.
Here at Island Return It Recycling Centres we have been helping people realize their resolutions the easy way for 20 years. That’s right, 2015 marks our 20th anniversary of providing hassle free recycling services to the people of the South Cowichan Valley and beyond!
Here’s the trick: simply by recycling with us you can instantly take care of the following resolutions:
- Do more for the environment: Kind of a “gimme” here, we are talking about recycling after all.
- Support local business: Our head office has been located in Duncan for the past 20 years, and we’re here to stay.
- Do more for the community: Island Return It has always been committed to the local community. Just by recycling with us you help support the Cowichan Exhibition, Cowichan Capitals, Thunderbird Basketball, Cowichan Green Community, Mt. Prevost Downhill bike race, Cowichan Sportsplex, Environment Commission of the CVRD, and the Cowichan River Cleanup. Just to name a few! We have also helped local sports teams raise over $95,000 annually through our bottle drive program.
- Get more exercise: Go and lug your old, giant TV down from the attic, or up from the basement, haul it into our recycling centre and tell me you didn’t just get a ton of exercise. Now repeat with all your old small appliances, beverage containers, and electronics. Sounds like we just invented a new work out routine.
Thank you for making us a vital part of this community for the past 20 years. We are committed to continuing our reputation for excellent service, impeccable facilities, and community involvement.
Keep it simple this year and just make one resolution: recycle with us and cover all of your bases. Let’s go for another 20 years together…for our community, and for our planet.
