Buggie the new face of bug club

The Junior Bug Club run by the Mission Adopt-A-Block Society has received a facelift.

The Junior Bug Club run by the Mission Adopt-A-Block Society has received a facelift.

The litter abatement program for Mission kids has been updated with a new name and new logo which now adorns the club shirts, bags, and promotional materials.

The new bubbly “Buggie” is designed to engage children’s creativity and desire to create positive change.

“Our bug club has been a tremendous success story with incredible growth in a short period of time. At times our name was confusing for some, so we wanted to restructure the club with an appropriate name and friendly mascot that truly reflected the work of the club members,” explained Kristin Parsons, executive director of Mission Adopt-a-Block.

The now re-named Junior Anti-Litter Bug Club invites children within the community to learn about the impact litter has on the environment and to become litter bug avengers by contributing to the eradication of litter in the community.

Members are encouraged to reduce their own litter, stop litter bugs when they see them and appropriately dispose of litter found on the streets, parks, streams and trails by using their bug club tools (provided in their kits).

New members receive a starter package that includes a membership T-shirt, litter collection bag and set of litter pickers to use whenever they see litter in the community.

In addition, this package includes a litter education booklet with fun facts about litter, games, colouring and a pledge certificate that can be hung on their wall.

For more information or to sign up for the club, contact Mission Adopt-A-Block at missionadoptablock.com or call 604-826-9423.
