It was a very rewarding evening for the hard working representatives of our four Saskatchewan stores, as they accepted the 2017 Saskatchewan Waste Minimization Award in the Corporation category.
At the award podium were Greg Hern – HR Manager, Environment from SaskTel, John Van Koll – London Drugs Store Manager, Sheandra Stewart – London Drugs Store Manager, and Dustin Duncan – Saskatchewan Minister of Environment.
Winning this award was no small feat. In 2017, Saskatchewan London Drugs stores diverted 455,753 lbs. of waste from landfill, including; 29,093 lbs. of electronics; 13,603 lbs of batteries; 54,039 lbs. of small appliances; 32,493 lbs of food donations; and 14,047 lbs of organic waste.
“I’m honoured to accept this award from the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction council.” said Sheandra Stewart, “I’m so proud tonight for London Drugs to be recognized for all we do at our stores and corporately, for the betterment of our planet, our staff and our customers.”
London Drugs has a long history in Saskatchewan and remains committed to our continued journey toward sustainability by reducing waste and providing greener shopping and product options for our customers.
On behalf of the roughly 350 people working and serving to bring an exceptional shopping experience to Regina or Saskatoon every day, we say congratulations, and thanks – you are the real Green Deal!
