Vaughan set to celebrate its environmental heritage

April 2, 2017 by  

The community of Vaughn will be celebrating its natural heritage by hosing a series of Environmental Days that will both bring people together and demonstrate steps they can take to “go green” in their daily lives.

The city will be hosting five different events, and all of them will include activities that can show people ways they can make a tangible difference. There will be an opportunity to find out what the city is doing itself to ensure sustainability, and members of the public can donate gently used articles to the Canadian Diabetes Clothesline Drive to keep their unwanted items out of landfills.

The Water Quality and Compliance Department will provide information about water quality and conservation, and people can purchase a rain barrel, blue box, composter or green bin or exchange a city issued one that has been damaged. Both electric car information and electronic recycling booths will also be set up, and the public is invited to come out and learn how they can be good stewards of the environment. A company that produces customized stationery can supply an event like this with promotional products such as branded stickers, brochures and more that can be distributed to anyone who asks for more information.

The Environmental Days will be held throughout the month a May, and a full schedule of dates, times and locations has been made available on the Vaughan website.
