VANCOUVER, BC, April 21, 2021 /CNW/ - TGS Esports Inc. ("TGS" or the "Company") (TSXV: TGS) (OTC: TGSEF) (FRA: 5RH) is pleased to announce an exciting new collegiate esports events program partnership with Return-It to help drive recovery rates for beverage containers in BC. The partnership kicks off on Earth Day (April 22th, 2021) and is a first of its kind marketing partnership that will highlight the importance of sustainability to gamers across British Columbia.
This campaign is targeted to 18 to 34 year-olds. Many of the empty beverage containers not recycled in BC each year are within this demographic – the most of any age group.
TGS and Return-It are using an integrated awareness campaign to empower and challenge gamers to improve their recycling habits through video content, messaging in TGS esports events, as well as a Collegiate esports program run by TGS owned Volcanic Media. The partnership will also focus on story-telling around Earth Day and will include several fun and engaging activations.
The partnership will feature TGS's new prediction game (see TGS announcement of strategic partnership with Fans Unite, March 17th https://investtgs.com/news/news-details/2021/TGS-Esports-Inc.-Announces-Strategic-Technology-Partnership-with-FansUnite-Entertainment/default.aspx), which will gamify the educational components of the campaign to help drive key messages through in-stream quizzes.
"Increasing recycling rates across British Columbia is a key priority for our organization and we are always looking for ways to educate the next generation on the importance of recycling." said Allen Langdon, President & CEO, Return-It. "Collaborating with TGS allows us to engage and highlight the importance of recycling directly to this target audience in a fun and engaging way."
"Sustainability is one of TGS' core values, and we feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with Return-It on this endeavor. Return-It is a household name synonymous with sustainability and recycling in British Columbia. We're thrilled that the message of sustainability and recycling can target such a critical demographic with our help." said Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS.
