Halifax, Nova Scotia - Recognizing the importance of promoting a healthy, green, clean and sustainable environment, Eastlink employees donned rubber gloves and filled refuse and blue bags in support of HRM's 20-Minute Makeover on Wednesday.
Together, 44 employees collected three dozen bags of refuse from the areas surrounding Eastlink offices on Young Street, Bilby Street, Macara Street and Sackville Drive. Eastlink employees based in Yarmouth and Bridgewater also participated in the clean-up.
"We have hundreds of employees who not only work but live here in the HRM with their families and friends and it's important to celebrate the environment and beauty for which the region has become famous," said Dan McKeen, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Eastlink. "By participating in the clean-up, we are helping to maintain a healthy city."
In conjunction with Canadian Environment Week activities, the 20-Minute HRMakeover targets HRM businesses and residents - asking them for a 20-minute commitment to clean up around their own business, home, or school in an effort to promote a healthy, clean, and sustainable community.
