Earth Day: Toyota Canada Has Future Generations In Mind

April 22nd, 2016 by

Happy Earth Day from all of us at Crown Toyota Scion!

Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world with more than six million Canadians participating in Earth Day activities within their neighborhood and communities.

We here at Crown Toyota Scion believe that each and every one of us has the power to make a difference, which is why we are proud to announce Toyota Canada’s commitment to environmental sustainability via Earth Day initiatives this week.

“Earth Day is a great reminder of the responsibility each individual has to the environment every day,” said Larry Hutchinson, President and CEO, Toyota Canada Inc. “It’s the reason why Toyota is not only committed to designing, engineering and manufacturing vehicles with sustainability in mind, but ultimately protecting our planet for future generations.”

Toyota dealers in Québec distributed seedlings to more than 450 children through The Eden Projects, a non-governmental organization with a mission to fight climate change through the conservation and restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity.

In addition, for all the trees planted in Quebec, Toyota is having The Eden Projects arrange for students at a school in Madagascar to plant the same number of trees there and provide school supplies. Only 10 per cent of that country’s original forests remain today.

On April 18, Toyota Canada associates in Toronto participated in the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF)’s CN Tower Climb for nature, donating over $3,000 to the cause.

As is tradition at Toyota Canada during the week of Earth Day celebrations, the company’s executives and associates dedicated their lunch time to cleaning up the outdoor area near the organization’s Head Office in Toronto. This year, they collected a total of 66 bags of garbage and 60 kilograms of other items.

On the road,Toyota has taken a broad portfolio approach to lead the automotive industry in advanced powertrain innovation for a better, greener tomorrow from conventional gas engines, to hybrids and fuel cell vehicles. By investing time and money into research and development of various mobility solutions, Toyota envisions a low carbon society.
