Kids Who Explore: Fourth Annual Planet Cleanup Event - Making a Difference, One Step at a Time

In April 2024, we hosted our fourth annual Kids Who Explore Planet Cleanup event with the help of our sponsors! Have you ever wondered what #KWEPlanetCleanup is actually all about? The mission is simple yet powerful: to educate children about the impact of garbage and to empower them to take action in preserving our planet.

What is 'Planet Cleanup'?

Planet Cleanup is an initiative created by Kids Who Explore in 2021 to celebrate Earth Day, and help do our part in keeping our planet clean and preserved for generations to come. Each year, we choose a location to host the cleanup. Tons of families have joined us year after year to help us clean and celebrate our beautiful planet - because let's face it, we only have one Earth!

The Planet Cleanup event is much more than just picking up trash. It is an educational experience that combines fun with learning. One of the most exciting aspects of the event is the sense of community it fosters. Children, parents, and volunteers come together to clean up local parks, beaches, and neighbourhoods. This collaboration not only helps in making the environment cleaner but also strengthens community bonds. It’s heartwarming to see families working side by side, sharing stories, and building friendships while contributing to a common cause.

The tangible impact of the Planet Cleanup event is significant. In just a few hours, participants manage to collect bags of litter, ranging from plastic bottles and wrappers to old toys and discarded household items. As the event organizers, we ensure that all collected waste is properly sorted and recycled, demonstrating the importance of responsible waste management to the young participants.

Our 2024 Event

We started our day at Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre (discount code below!) and began cleaning trash through the picturesque townsite of Canmore. Families were gifted a Kids Who Explore Swag Bag filled with goodies from our sponsors Peeled Beverages and Baby Gourmet. Some of the items we found were:

  • Styrofoam Cups

  • Masks

  • Apple Cores

  • and so much more trash...

After our cleaning wrapped up, we were treated to a warm fire & s'mores at Table Food & Drink at the Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre, which was the perfect way to end our day in the mountains.

The day was filled with connection, learning, and hands-on action, culminating in the collection of an impressive amount of waste, all of which was properly sorted and recycled. This year's event not only made a tangible impact on the local community but also further instilled a sense of environmental responsibility and pride among the young explorers.

A huge thank-you to...

The Planet Cleanup event by Kids Who Explore is a shining example of how we can inspire the younger generation to take an active role in environmental conservation. By turning cleanup efforts into a fun and educational activity, this initiative is helping to build a community of environmentally conscious individuals who will continue to care for our planet in the years to come. Let's support and participate in such events to ensure a cleaner, greener future for all.
