This month we interviewed Rochelle Byrne, working at A Greener Future. Their goal is to preserve the environment through litter cleanups, education and events.

A Greener Future is an environmental non-profit dedicated to leading the effort in sustaining a clean and healthy environment. By bringing together a community of volunteers and environmental stewards, they facilitate programs that eliminate waste from the environment. As education is at the centre of what they do, they inspire change through a variety of learning opportunities. Their programs raise awareness about plastic pollution in the Great Lakes Region, and detailed data collection sheds light on the most common items that are found during litter cleanups.

Tim Grant is a green heart in action volunteering for Harbord Village Residents Association and spearheading exciting projects like the Net Zero Carbon Project.
