    WHO:   Mary Desjardins, Executive Director, TD Friends of the Environment

    WHY:   Every year over one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals
           and turtles die through entanglement and ingestion of litter, and
           it's estimated that 80 per cent of this litter originates from
           land based sources.

           This year as many as 60,000 Canadians will work together from
           September 19-27 to remove nearly 200 garbage trucks worth of trash
           (more than 135,000 kilograms) from shorelines and waterways during
           the 16th annual TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
