June 5-11th. – Canadian Environment Week
Canadian Environment Week is a time for grassroots action to help preserve, protect and restore our environment. This annual event provides us all with an opportunity to celebrate the progress that has been made but also to encourage further efforts all year long.
It is important to remember that every effort counts, big or small.
There are many opportunities for you to celebrate our environment
-Have a tree-planting party in your community! Planting a tree is one of the best things you can do for the environment.
-Host a kids’ arts and crafts contest using only recycled products, e.g., a hanging mobile using blue box content.
-Have a trash-free barbecue and invite guests to bring dinnerware (utensils) or use a Frisbee as a plate! This is good for the environment and good for your health (running after it) afterwards!
– Encourage people to take the bus, carpool or ride their bikes to your event (and you too!) to stay active and keep the air clean.
