The Salvation Army Territorial Headquarters is a registered participant in Earth Hour 2010. Participation in Earth Hour is a symbolic global statement about making long-term changes to the way we use resources both in the workplace and at home.

Last year more than 10 million Canadians turned off their lights. For more information visit www.EarthHourCanada.org.

As The Salvation Army continues to take practical steps to conserve the environment, its Territorial Headquarters is now recycling batteries and the building has wireless capabilities. In addition, at the conclusion of each day, staff make conscious efforts to turn off unnecessary lighting, are unplugging components to cut down on ‘ghost electricity’ use, and are turning off computers.

What environmental initiatives are you taking?
