A mother in British Columbia is trying to raise money to help her son clean up his bathtub.
She said she bought two plastic barrels, but she only got one.
“The plastic barrels have been a really nice addition to the tub because they’re really sturdy, they’re durable, they can be recycled, and they can’t be scratched,” said Kristy Loyden.
“I think it’s really important for people to understand that the tub has to be cleaned up.
It’s not just a bathtub.”
B.C.’s Ministry of Health said it is helping with a new program for people who need to clean their own tubs.
The Ministry of the Environment says the government will match $200 for tub cleaning to $50 for each barrel purchased.
“You can buy a tub and it’ll cost you $100,” said spokesperson Jennifer Stinson.
“But if you get one and it’s damaged or dirty, you’ll pay $50.”
Stinson said the government is aware of the situation and is providing free, reusable tubs and plastic barrels.
“It’s actually very rare that someone is really in need of this kind of help, but if you need help, you can call us,” she said.
