Spending Canada Day Long Weekend communing with nature and sending some love (and money) to our First Nations brothers and sisters. Where we live is so amazing, let's continue to fight for our environment and the people who were here long before our ancestors discovered it's vast and unending beauty. Happy Canada Day.💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚
Driving across Canada has definitely reinforced for us how important the trees are to our landscapes, from the prairies to the mountains. Touring has an impact on our beautiful environment and before leaving on this drive we committed to offsetting our carbon footprint for the tour with our friends at Tree Canada. For three of us driving 3946km in a Toyota RAV4 we will emit 1.06 tonnes of carbon and require 10 trees to offset. Sounds expensive? At $6 per tree the tour is going to cost us $60+GST... so why aren't more of us doing this! Let's start a trend music friends! @rainehamilton @rogerrogermusic @rayannahmusic @apollosunsmusic @kakagimusic @sweetalibi @micaherenbergmusic @brain_forest @sheenarattai @crooked_brothers @mbartscouncil @manitobamusic @joeylandreth @krisulrich @spruceandthemeadowlark @lakesandpinesmusic @tansyish @dirtycatfishbrassband @treecanada #treecanada#keepcanadabeautiful#environmentcanada#planttrees#therewillbedaystour#casatiband#westerncanadiantour#thisisourplanethelpkeepitclean#carbonfootprint#offsetyourride#trees
Theatre life glamour shot! Our Executive Director Vance Neudorf looks after many facets of the organization and sometimes that means literally jumping in and helping out.
In this case it means rescuing cardboard from the dumpster to put it into the correct cardboard recycling bin.
We do what we can to respect our environment here in the beautiful Canadian Badlands. We are always looking for ways to reduce (like our new LED light bulbs), reuse (paper recycling in the office) or recycle (pop bottles, cardboard etc). All together now!

Is it just me? Am I the only one who does this?? It seems that a lot and not just lately, I am finding myself cleaning up the garbage that others have left behind.
More often than not, I am cleaning up fishing line and other objects from the edges of streams and whatnot. I go for a walk in the bush and I am cleaning up candy wrappers and water bottles among other garbage.
I ALWAYS bring a grocery bag or other sort of carrier for my garbage when I go outdoors. I try my best to leave an area cleaner than I found it.
Question: Why do people litter?
Is it because it's easier than carrying a small garbage bag?
Is it because of laziness?
There would be no need for special groups that need donations to help raise funds to clean up certain areas IF everyone cleaned up after themselves!! Our streets, parks, woods are not a personal dumping ground!!
