On Monday (November 7th), Lansdowne Place launched their newest Organics Program, A Greener Way to Clean Your Tray, in the mall food court. The waste containers have been removed from the food court, making way for a new Sorting Station that has been installed.
Similar to what you may have experienced in many GTA malls, Lansdowne Place shoppers are now able to drop off their trays at the Sorting Station and the staff will do the rest to ensure as much unnecessary waste as possible is diverted from the landfills.
"We always consider tomorrow at Lansdowne Place and continue to add new programs to help reduce our carbon footprint," says Emily Dart, Marketing Director at Lansdowne Place. "Since the launch of our behind-the-counter Organics Program last year, Lansdowne Place has been able to divert 28 metric tonnes of organic waste from the landfill. With the launch of our newest Organics Program in the foot court, we hope to become that much closer to reaching our goal of zero waste at the Shopping Centre."
