ST. JOHN’S, NL – May 31 – June 6 is Environment Week in Canada, and the Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is looking to promote your organization’s initiatives and activities in recognition and celebration.
“One opportunity we can investigate is the amount of waste we are producing at work,” says Ted Lomond, NEIA’s Executive Director. “60% of this province’s waste is produced at work or school.” Lomond notes that per capita, Newfoundland and Labrador produces more waste than most other provinces in the country.
For its part, NEIA is undertaking one unique initiative each day. Stay tuned to its twitter account @NEIASSOC to see the small things the organization will be doing to recognize Environment Week 2015.
“Simple deviations in our daily routines and decisions can help to significantly reduce our collective impact on Newfoundland and Labrador’s environment,” says Lomond. “We look forward to hearing about and sharing your stories.”
NEIA is a not-for-profit association of businesses that promotes the growth and development of the green economy in Newfoundland and Labrador. NEIA has over 190 members. More information can be found at www.neia.org.
