Durham Five Million Trees Program

The Durham Five Million Trees program is part of the Durham Community Climate Change Local Action Plan and calls for trees to be planted across the region on public and private land to combat climate change. Since 2015, Raw Materials Company has been working with Durham Region and Forests Ontario to plant trees across the region.

In 2015, Raw MaterialsCompany was endorsed by the Durham Region Council to be a corporate champion for the Durham Five Million Trees Program. The tree program is part of the Durham Community Climate Change Local Action Plan and calls for trees to be planted across the region on public and private land to combat climate change.

Working alongside the Region and Forests Ontario, Raw Materials Company makes a financial contribution to Forests Ontario for each kilogram of household batteries recycled at participating stores. It takes approximately three kilograms of batteries to plant and care for one tree.

 

The Ontario Schools Battery Recycling Challenge (OSBRC) supports the SickKids Foundation.

SickKids Foundation

In the summer of 2014, Raw Materials Company selected the SickKids Foundation in Toronto to be the recipient of 10% of the Ontario Schools Battery Recycling Challenge (OSBRC) prize pool.

The OSBRC is a provincial recycling competition between elementary and secondary schools. The aim of the Challenge is to teach students and their parents about the importance of battery recycling and to raise awareness about safe storage and the handling of batteries.

This charitable donation is made on behalf of all OSBRC participants at the end of the Challenge.

 

The program aims to raise awareness about battery recycling and provides Habitat customers with a convenient place to recycle their batteries. In return, RMC provides a donation back for each kilogram to support local homebuilding projects. Habitat for Humanity

Committed to building affordable housing for low-income families, Habitat for Humanity affiliate stores coordinate events and fundraising initiatives at the community level. The funds they receive are used to select partner families for homeownership, provide them with support and to manage the building of Habitat homes.

Since 2012, Raw Materials Company has been building a partnership that now includes all 26 Habitat for Humanity affiliate stores across Ontario. The program aims to raise awareness about battery recycling and provides Habitat customers with a convenient place to recycle their batteries. In return, RMC provides a donation back for every kilogram recycled to support Habitat’s local homebuilding projects.
