What is Project Love’s environmental impact?
CODE encourages the purchase of school materials made in local regions of Canada so that transportation of such goods have minimal effect on the environment in terms of fuel emissions or fuel use if imported from another country. Also, purchasing goods made in Canada and shipped to a developing country guarantees that Canadian firms have environmentally safe conditions whereas if the goods were produced overseas those environment regulations may not be in place. CODE encourages the Reuse and Recycle of boxes in which to mail your Project Love kits. We also encourage participants to use our on-line forms saving in paper and trees. When CODE ships the container of Project Love boxes, we use containers that are nearly full- taking advantage of maximum usage and saving on fuel.
