Earth Day is this Friday, April 22. We can all do our part. What will you do for the environment this Friday?
Take public transit to work
Plant a tree
Or, even better, maybe this is the time to start greening your workplace with ideas like energy conservation, car pooling, recycling or reducing waste. CUPE has produced a fact sheet if you want to set up an environment committee in your workplace.
CUPE also wants to encourage and promote existing green practices in our locals’ workplaces. You may submit your local for our 2016 Earth Day contest. Deadline is May 6.
