Compost Ad Challenge: snap, enter, win


Get ready to see the see the Compost Education Centre’s message rolling by you soon! Our message of composting and conservation will be advertised on the side of BC Transit buses in Victoria during the month of May. To celebrate our mobile messaging, we’re running a photo contest. Keep you eyes peeled (heh heh) for our ad on a bus when you’re walking, cycling, or driving by and then (carefully) take a photo or a selfie with the location and bus number and submit it to us. Each entry will be entered into a draw to win a $100 Whole Foods gift card.
