A Wrap-up of iQ Earth Day Events (Week of April 22)

Apr 30, 2012 — Mary Wilkins

Davidson:
Members of the Davidson office, in conjunction with the Davidson Land Conservancy, worked cleaning up two locations: Roosevelt Wilson Park and the shores of Lake Davidson.

It was hard, dirty work, and by the time we were done, we had removed 278 pounds of debris! A shout-out to the guys who donned hip-waders and went into the edge of the lake to really dig out the debris. We were dirty, tired and happy to have participated and made a significant impact in the local community!

Winnipeg:
Some members of the Winnipeg office took part in the Downtown Biz Earth Day Clean-up initiative. We went to the Thunderbird House downtown at 9 a.m. to help clean up around the area. We were given a couple of options so we chose the Waterfront park location.

This park is near the office and a place we like to frequent in the summertime. It was a great option for us to clean it up for us and other company’s located downtown to enjoy! Our team cleaned up the whole park in a matter of an hour and it looks great! As an added bonus, we were among the first to arrive at the event and received free Tim Horton’s mugs and aprons. We are so glad that we had a chance to take part as a team and have a positive effect on Earth Day.

Regina:
Members of Regina’s iQ Green Team braved the rain and went over to the Central Park, a few blocks away from the office.

We cleaned up bags of soggy litter and the park looked amazing when we were done. We were happy not only to be celebrating Earthy Day in a productive manner, but also got in our “squat exercises” too!

Now the park will be even more enjoyable for lunch breaks and soccer games as the weather clears up and Spring really arrives.  

Vancouver:
The Vancouver Green Team has set up a drop-off box for CD/DVD and battery recycling. Shannon periodically collects them and drops them off at a local recycling center. The team is also looking forward to a couple upcoming green events in Vancouver: the EPIC Sustainable Living Expo (May 11-13) and the Vancouver Bike to Work Week (May 28-June 1). Stay tuned for more info!
