Show Me Some Love

EarthDay2014Story-crop
Earth Day around the world (fittingly) is celebrated on April 22 since 1990. More than 6 million Canadians join 1 billion people in over 170 countries for events that tackle local and global environmental issues. That’s a pretty serious honour that we hope has some staying power year-round. We’ve stretched it out for a whole week this year so that everyone has a chance to join in.

What’s Happening at UHN?

Roving Photobooth with Green Action Bubbles! Coming to a lobby booth near you (see schedule for your site)

What’s that? Visit our lunchtime lobby booths and pose for a picture in front of our earth week backdrop that says “I Green UHN by…”. Hold up a speech bubble with the green action of your choice, like “recycling” or “turning off lights” or your very own message (keep it clean, people). By doing a week instead of a day, 1 booth serves all sites instead of making 6 booths – excellent waste reduction in action :). Look for your picture here and on the UHN Facebook page!
