|Initiative for Fort McMurray Evacuees ||May 2016||Thank you to all those who participated!|
Thank you to those who supported Fort McMurray victims by providing clean used clothing (and/or new socks and underwear), non-perishable food items and toiletries. Between May 6th and 11th we managed to fill two vehicles full of donations to drop off at North Star Ford in NW Calgary. These donations will be driven north by transport trucks.
If you are interested, you can also donate cash to the Canadian Red Cross. Right now the Province of Alberta and the Federal Government are matching donations. To make a donation, call 1-800-418-1111 or visit their website HERE.
Tips & Ideas of the Month
Reduce use of paper towel use with this one simple trick: "Joe Smith: How to use a paper towel" (TED Talk)".
Reduce office printing by using overhead projectors for agendas or magnetized, erasable white boards for note-taking.
Consider a meatless Monday! Treat yourself to one day without any meat products. Recipes could include eggplant lasagna, cauliflower gnocchi, portobello mushroom burgers, etc.
Recycle your Christmas tree! More details can be found at The City of Calgary website.
Remember to power off all office equipment before the holidays to reduce wasting energy and fight global warming!
Consider a "re-gift" gift exchange, instead of buying new from a big box store. If you must buy new, consider supporting a local business. Use environmentally friendly wrapping or no wrapping at all!
