MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 25, 2021 /CNW/ – Today, Morguard Corporation (“Morguard”) (TSX: MRC) announced that their National Retail Program “OnePlanet,” part of Sustainable Morguard, is teaming up with Earth Rangers for the “Got Your Ears On” campaign. This environmental awareness initiative will be promoted by Morguard’s 19 Canadian retail centres from August 23 â September 6, 2021, both online and in the shopping centres.
“Collaborating on this retail campaign demonstrates our commitment to sustainability by helping to empower young people and their families to take sustainable action,” said Andrea Tushingham, Director, National Retail Marketing. “By working with incredible organizations such as Earth Rangers, we can raise awareness and further educate our communities on the importance of protecting our environment.”
Earth Rangers is a kids’ conservation organization committed to sustainable practices. The focus of this project is to instill environmental knowledge, positivity, and confidence in kids ages 6-12 to take action. Parents and children will have access to a handy guide with tangible, effective, and fun ways to turn environmental concerns into sustainable action.
“Together with Morguard’s retail team, we have a unique opportunity to engage youth in environmental action,” states Tovah Barocas, President of Earth Rangers. “We know kids across Canada are concerned about the future of the planet. We need to put our ears on and listen, and ensure they are equipped with the tools and knowledge to make a difference, and the confidence to create change.”
The “Got Your Ears On” initiative will include a contest to win a $1,000 shopping spree and online activities for the whole family.
