I was asked to join the dynamic group of David Suzuki ambassadors because of my commitment to the environment, both at home and at work. The green business ambassadors
are a group of volunteers who go out to workplaces around greater Vancouver and Toronto and facilitate workshops. We help businesses help themselves through a series of interactive activities to green their business.Greening a workplace is a necessary and very achievable goal which in turn builds moral, team power and deep satisfaction.
When I joined the real estate industry it was vital to me to bring the environment to the forefront. It all started with contracting a fantastic company, Saul's Good Gifts to create a unique and amazing client gift box made of pine beetle wood etched with my branding created by the talented Angela Chan, principal of Angela Chan Design.
A group of women from the downtown east side are taught and employed to do the engraving. I fill these fantastic goodie-boxes with local, "green" products for the home. Everything from cleaning products, wine, chocolate, books and gifts will be found in the unique and re-usable gift caddy. Needless to say they are always appreciated by my buyers and sellers!
Having 2 young children I feel it is my responsibility to help leave the world a better place for the generations to follow, and the ambassador program is my way of giving back.
I would encourage you to visit the David Suzuki ambassador web site
and continue to do your part. There is no Planet B.- Merideth Schutter, Vancouver Realtor
