"At 33 Dundas, we realize that small changes in daily habits can have a huge environmental impact. Despite good intentions single use plastic water bottles often don't end up being recycled - they fly away on garbage day or if the recycling contains unacceptable items, the whole batch gets rejected and becomes garbage. And even if they do get recycled, it takes energy that could be used for necessary purposes like lighting, heating, or cooling. Now each staff member has brought their own reusable bottle that they fill from the tap and keep at their workstation. On a weekly basis, this keeps saves 30 or more plastic bottles! So simple, and yet so impactful!!"
