Village Earth Day clean up 2012 a success

Dozens of local residents came together for Saturday’s Earth Day clean up. They joined the BWVRA Exec, Councillor Sarah Doucette, the Bloor West Village BIA, and the City of Toronto in the event, braving some chilly weather with great enthusiasm.

Powered by coffee and hot chocolate kindly supplied by Starbucks, and bake sweets donated by Opera Cafe residents young and old grabbed bags and plastic gloves (courtessy of Shopper’s Drug Mart and Pizza Pizza), the clean up crew fanned out from the Runnymede Library across the Village area.

Maps and routes supplied by the BWVRA made sure the retail strip, residential streets and area parks got the once over. Thanks to everyone who participated and those Village businesses whose contributions made it all so much more fun.
