This change is in addition to my change "Help Plant 1000 Trees". I figure that in order to assure the health of the forest I want to plant, I need to help maintain the health of current local forest patches. My mission is to set out and pick up litter in the little neglected patches of forests that run through Nanaimo, areas that are littered by neighbours and nightly teenage strolls.
Bring any mobile phone, battery or accessory, irrespective of carrier, into your local Telus store, and they'll plant a tree for FREE!
Starting next week I will be advertising drop-off locations around Nanaimo for broken and unwanted phones. Help my campaign to plant a new forest in BC this year!
For those of you reading this outside the Regional District of Nanaimo and inspired to lend your support by dropping off your old phones at a Telus location, please drop a comment that you did so and I will add your donation to the total count.
British Columbia’s competitive advantage rests on social and ecological diversity unparalleled in the world. Our rich rainforests, teeming rivers and bountiful seas, combined with our well-educated workforce and unique blend of Indigenous and global cultures, differentiates us in the world.
The conservation economy is driven by the triple-bottom-line, where economic opportunity improves rather than degrades social and environmental conditions. Some people call it sustainability – we call it the conservation economy. This economic approach provides meaningful work and good livelihoods, supports vibrant communities and the recognition of Aboriginal rights and title, and conserves and restores the environment.
