Media Alert/Photo Opportunity - Londoners are doing their part for the environment



    Local residents participate in the TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

    TORONTO, Sept. 22 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     The TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is one of the largest
              conservation initiatives in the world. Powered by volunteers,
              the cleanup started 15 years ago in Vancouver and has now grown
              to more than 60,000 volunteers coast to coast whose goal is to
              have a positive impact on the local environment by removing
              harmful garbage from their local shorelines. This includes
              ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, and of course, oceans.

    WHEN:     Thursday, September 25, 2008
              9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

    WHERE:    Fanshawe Park Dam
              Meeting Place: Fanshawe Park Main Entrance 1424 Clarke Road -
              parking on right shoulder past the dam

    WHO:      Yvette Scrivener, Regional Manager, TD Friends of the
              Environment Foundation

              Brad Hertner, Community Partnerships Specialist, Upper Thames
              Valley Conservation Authority

    WHY:      Every year over one million birds and 100,000 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, over 60,000 Canadians will work
              together from September 20 to 28 to remove nearly 100 tonnes of
              litter from our shorelines and waterways during the 15th annual
              TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

              Local TD employees and London residents are encouraged to
              participate in the cleanup at Fanshawe Park; or join us at the
              cleanup at River Forks park on Saturday, September 27 (meet in
              Children's Museum parking lot).
