Encorp was a proud sponsor of Festival Inspire’s 2021 NB Tour – with sponsorship helping to cover the costs for some of the murals to have an environmental education theme (list them here) as well as an interesting partnership to make the festival even greener by promoting recycling. In each location, Encorp’s Re-Mobile travelling depot was on site to help the festival raise funds via a special Recycling Heroes bottle drive benefiting local charities. The bottle drive efforts raised $XXX.XX which will be donated by Festival Inspire to its chosen charity partners from each location of the 2021 tour.
