ACTON, ON, Oct. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - On October 5th, 40 employees of the Dufferin Aggregates Acton Quarry made their personal contributions to the environment and community by planting 500 native-species trees at two locations on the Bruce Trail, near the town of Acton, Ontario. Organized by Dufferin Aggregates in partnership with the Toronto Bruce Trail Club, trees were planted on the Bruce Trail's Springle property and around the Club's parking lot. The event is part of the massive Together for Communities employee volunteer initiative sponsored by Dufferin Aggregates' parent company, Holcim (Canada) Inc., to mark the centenary of its parent company, Swiss multi-national Holcim Ltd. The initiative aims to mobilize Holcim employees to each dedicate one day of volunteering to the communities where it operates. If all 80,000 Holcim employees from around the world contribute, the company would be giving back almost 100 years of volunteer service to its local communities. Through initiatives like the tree planting on the Bruce Trail, Dufferin Aggregates and its Acton Quarry continue to demonstrate their commitment to neighbours, to being responsible corporate citizens and stewards of the natural environment.
