By Spencer Yarnell Head of Spreading the Herd Word
Tomorrow we here at IBEX Payroll start our sixth annual Clean Your Green campaign titled Move the Greenometer. This year we’ll be cleaning up only as much as you guys donate so dig deep Winnipeg because it’s going to be a wild June! The campaign this year has a few different goals!
The way Move the Greenometer works is every Friday for the rest of June the IBEX herd will get out and clean the garden, but the catch is, they’ll only clean a meter of the garden for every$130.89 they’ve received in donations thus far, so you’d better get generous if you want a clean city!
For more info see our newly refurbished website!
Also you’ll want to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and here as we pull off some crazy stunts and promotions to try and get Green Cleaned. You want your own personalized song? I’d suggest you get following us (Hint, hint, nudge, nudge).
Either way get ready for an unreal June Winnipeg! Get ready to Move the Greenometer!
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.
