Earth Rangers Missions provide children and families with a hands-on way to get involved and make a difference for the environment on Earth Day and any day of the year. Earlier this year, Earth Rangers announced the launch of a new component to their membership program based on ‘Missions’ - simple activities that encourage environmentally responsible behaviours while teaching children and their families how they can help protect animals and their habitats.
Missions are fun assignments that Earth Rangers Members are challenged to complete throughout the year, designed to keep them engaged and actively participating in actions that directly contribute to the health of the planet all year round. New Missions are regularly sent to Members and vary in size, scope and theme, from battery recycling to making a homemade bird feeder to taking part in green activities.
Earth Rangers Missions provide a new level of interaction and engagement with Members, resulting in new generations of youth that are mindful about the health of the planet and wildlife.
The Battery Blitz Mission encourages children to collect and recycle batteries properly by teaching them about the serious environmental impact when batteries end up in the landfill.
In the first two months, over 4,000 Earth Rangers have accepted the Mission and, so far, almost 30,000 batteries have been recycled! Earth Ranger Corbett collected 150 batteries and took them to the local depot in his community.
“When I heard what happens to batteries when we just throw them out, I wanted to collect batteries so we can stop them from going into landfills and hurting the earth.”
