Council Watch - Why TEA deserves your vote

As summer comes to a close and a new school year begins, TEA is saying good-bye to eight amazing summer students and blushing from an award nomination!

We put the TEA in Teacher

This summer, TEA had a team of dedicated students reaching out in Etobicoke, Scarborough and downtown. They attended community events, ran workshops, knocked on doors & so much more.

Their work has introduced TEA to hundreds of new members and community groups. Thank you to all the volunteers and community partners we worked with, especially Montgomery's Inn and Council of Agencies Serving South Asians. Check out our photo album!

"I enjoyed doing presentations and directly engaging community members on environmental issues they feel are affecting their lives. It was also really great to learn about the structures of City Hall in depth, so we can continue on mobilizing our communities once this internship is over."  - Ayan Mohamed

We would like to thank our students for their hard work and dedication to TEA this summer. Watch out Toronto, these are our future movers and shakers!

Be air aware

Don't be fooled by cooler weather! Toronto's air poses health risks all year round. Check the Air Quality Health Index in your district daily.

25 years of TEA

In Sept. 2006, the Province agreed to a deposit-return program for LCBO containers - after a decade long TEA campaign! (photo circa 2001)

Kids in B.C. return milk jugs & pop bottles for money. Why not here in Ontario?
