On behalf of all 7,000 of us at The Beer Store, we thank the Globe Foundation for this very prestigious award. We are very proud of our green initiatives and in addition to Health and Safety, Responsible Sale, and Community Citizenship, Environmental Responsibility is one of our most critical core values. We've been at this since 1927 and as we like to say; we were green before green was cool.
We reuse or recycle 4,000 containers every minute every day. A half billion metric tonnes of landfill are avoided every year due to our efforts. Utilizing recycled material instead of virgin raw materials
saves enough energy to heat 30,000 Canadian homes every year and the green house gas emissions avoided is like taking over 33,000 cars off the road.
Winning this award is the icing on the cake and I attribute this award to the hard work of our 7,000 wonderful employees. I can't wait to tell them about this and let them know how proud we are of them.
