Sustainability In Action
Spirit Community Garden
On behalf of the Great Canadian Landscaping Co., The Edible Garden Project and Park Royal, we are pleased to announce that phase 1 of the Park Royal Spirit Community Garden is complete. Located behind Osaka Supermarket and Staples on the upper level rooftop space at Park Royal South, the garden currently has 16 planters with a longer-term plan to have upwards of 40.
Our objective for the Spirit Community Garden is to utilize this space in a productive way that allows us to further engage with our community and foster our goal of a more sustainable planet. We want to provide North Shore residents with more outlets to beautify the planet in an organic and sustainable manner.
Please contact Sara Park, Events & Marketing Coordinator, is you wish to secure a spot on the Spirit Community Garden waitlist at email@example.com or 604.923.4716.
Sustainability is a journey that we are all on. We all need to take stock of the way we live and make choices that will better our planet.
Park Royal is committed to operating in a manner that has high regard for our environment and the community. We have taken many steps and implemented many programs over the past number of years to alter the way we run our business and to help our merchants become more socially responsible themselves.
In the near future we will be implementing some new initiatives that will take us to the next level of sustainability…and will continue our journey down this path.
Inside Park Royal our staff wear uniforms made from recycled materials and we do our best to ensure that any purchasing that is done considers an eco-friendly alternative first.
And Did You Also Know…
That Park Royal has invested over $500,000 to retrofit over 3,000 parking lot lights? The annual power savings is enough to power over 100 homes for a year.
Our Gift Wrapping Paper is produced by 100% post-consumer waste? We also use eco-friendly hemp string instead of unsustainable ribbon and bows.
Our maintenance staff uses only earth friendly cleaning products? That way when the water is drained, it is not adversely affecting our environment
We have set up a public recycling program for all of our customers? Keep your eyes open for our bright recycling receptacles throughout the shopping centre so you can recycle too.
All fixtures in every public washroom are touchless? They are operated by a low-voltage electrical current, which eliminates the need for batteries, saves water, and paper towels.
Help us continue our path. Let’s work together to make the right choices for you and for the planet. Don’t forget to check back so you can see the latest progress we are making on our journey.
