Congress 2010 saves 139 trees
Statistics show that Landscape Ontario made a huge difference to the environment by saving the equivalent of 139 trees (up from 40 in 2009), 635 cubic yards of landfill space (61 cubic metres in 2009) and offset 3.69 tons of greenhouse gases (no direct comparison in 2009) during Congress 2010, held from Jan. 11 to 14. U-Pak Recycling, which monitors the waste generated from the trade show, presented the Zero Waste Certificate to LO for its efforts to be Green for Life. This is the second year that Congress has been involved in the Zero Waste Certificate program.
