“Oakville is our home so let’s take care of it” was the message of the day at the Fifth Annual Environmental Awareness Day held in the Tim Horton’s parking lot on Cross Avenue in the Trafalgar Village Mall.
“It is so rewarding to see how this grassroots event has expanded with more partners and volunteers to assist us with such a worthwhile cause, says Julia Hanna, chair of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce. “Raising awareness about recycling and greener living as well as participating in a neighbourhood clean-up benefits us all.”
This Oakville community event is a partnership between the Oakville Chamber of Commerce, Tim Horton’s, Kerr Village BIA, in association with M&M Meat Shops, Home Depot Children’s Workshop, RecurBox , the Driveway Doctor, the Main Event, Peel Scrap Metal Recycling and Shred-It. Big Brothers Big Sisters Halton benefit from the day’s proceeds. Local vendors were on hand with green exhibits, a community clean up, confidential document shredding, electronic recycling, children’s activities that included a bouncy castle and face painting, entertainment and a raffle.
