In this video, April Smith records a camera shy Tony Chisolm’s voice speaking about his vision to build  custom- made Re-Cycling Trailers to help clean up the Vancouver Downtown Eastside ( DTES)! 🙂tony-dtes-recycles-3

 He envisions building a social enterprise to help others like himself in the Vancouver Downtown (DTES) get into the Green movement and help with recycling and cleaning up our  neighborhood of popcans, empty bottles, old clothing etc.


He is looking for sponsors in either business development, funding, materials, space, guidance to help him realize his dream of cleaning and greening the Vancouver Downtown Eastside! 🙂

Tony’s dream is to build custom-made Re-cycling trailers that attached to the back of electric bicycles or regular bicycles and use that for working on Reducing, Reusing and Recycling! 🙂

He even has a special place where one can drain bottles and can upside down to get rid of any liquid remaining in the containers!


AHA MEDIA is proud to help Tony Chisholm, our DTES neigbor by giving media sponsorship and coverage through a site we will be building for him 🙂  ( Soon to come! )

Tony Chisholm writes: “I think my site would be beneficial to are community.  I like the site to benefit people with a purpose .and the monies to go to a purpose to keep are east side clean and green  by recycling  goods”.


A Clean, Green DTES to come! 🙂
