Join us for Earth Day at work!

Come out to 20 Bay Street, WaterPark Place Atrium and Food Court for some Earth Day education and fun! Hope to see you there!

earth day oxford

The movement continues. http://www.earthday.org/

We are now entering the 46th year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action.

In 1970, the year of our first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.

And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22, 2016. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.

This Earth Day and beyond, let’s make big stuff happen. Let’s plant 7.8 billion trees for the Earth. Let’s divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100% renewable. Let’s take the momentum from the Paris Climate Summit and build on it.

Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.

 

The Scoop is out for April!

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Stay in touch with the waterfront work community this Spring! Grab lunch from the newly renovated Sobey’s on Queens Quay, then take advantage of our complimentary helmet and bike locks to take a trip down the Waterfront trail using Toronto’s Bike Share system. The Rostie Group would like to welcome ioFabric, The Northern Coast and The Staffing Exchange to the waterfront work community; we are looking forward to a Spring and Summer full of exciting events and winning baseball games! Go Jays Go!
