How was the holiday weekend?
Short I imagine, but I think we probably all got we need to keep movin on.
Friday we did some moving of our own, the much promised second day of cleaning finally occurred for the 2012 Move the Greenometer campaign. We had a fair bit more ground to cover this time cleaning over 11 meters on Friday.
We even decided to put a little Canada Day flavour into our cleaning!
So adding in some donations today we’ve topped $3000. That’s a good chunk of cash but not nearly enough. We set out for $8000 and this perfectionist couldn’t stand any less.
Stay tuned for a video of Friday’s exploits. It could be out as early as tomorrow afternoon. Follow us on twitter to get the link.
Let us know what you think about Clean Your Green. What could IBEX do to get your donation? You might just be surprised at our willingness…
IBEX Payroll extends our profound respect and immeasurable gratitude to all the ancestors and keepers of the land on whose traditional territories our work takes place. We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. This land is sacred, historical, and significant.
Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on the wrongs of the past, what we do in the present, and what we can do to continually honour the people whose lands and water we benefit from today.
This statement only acts as a first step in honouring the land we reside on and its peoples, and must be paired with education, understanding and informed action.
Love what you did last week! Trimming and digging those bushes makes a huge difference, way to go Herd!
