Earth Week

Earth Week

Environment Project | Praxair Canada - Multiple Locations

Praxair Canada hosted an earth-friendly competition across all of its business groups during Earth Week 2013. Employees participated in a variety of projects, including: shoreline clean-up, waste removal at Praxair facilities and in nearby parks and schools, recycling programs,bike riding to work initiatives, an Earth Week logo competition and increased efforts to reduce paper and energy consumption. Employees also planted 175 trees as part of Mississauga's One Million Trees project and released young hatchery-raised white sturgeon into the Columbia River through the Upper Columbia White Sturgeon Recovery Initiative. The events were such a success last year that employee participation more than doubled in 2013. In addition, for each employee and business location that participated in Earth Week, Praxair Canada made a donation to the United Way, raising a total of $8,530.

The Need

We all depend on our planet's finite store of natural resources, which are increasingly under stress from population growth and continued development.

Making our Planet More Productive…

by providing a safe environment in which children can learn and grow free from harmful influences.

It was a great experience to participate in this year's Earth Week project. This was a great opportunity to make a positive difference by giving something back.
