I conserve water by having rocks instead of grass in my garden to reduce my water usage. I recycle whenever I can and use "green" cleaning products around the house with little or no chemicals. I donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Team ABC (Teachers Credit Union).
The money raised by Team ABC goes towards initiatives such as our "Adopt-a-School" program, Toonies for Transportation, our annual Adopt-a-Backpack / Lunch Bag campaign and other programs that benefit our local communities.
Some of the causes supported by Team ABC include:
Adopt-a-School Program - Our ongoing initiative benefits local schools and students in need.
