Every April, millions of people around the world mark Earth Day to show support for the environment. This year’s theme was “Restore Our Earth,” which focuses not only on the need to reduce our impact on the planet as we recover from the effects of Covid-19 but also on how we can play a role in repairing the damage we’ve collectively done.

This year, in an effort to incorporate environmentally-friendly habits into daily routines, Sim invited staff to take part in a friendly competition with a game of Earth Day Bingo. Staff were encouraged to participate in the challenge by completing and documenting daily activities to help reduce their impact on the environment. Activities such as eating plant-based meals, air drying clothing, composting and using eco-light bulbs were included. We’re thrilled to share that staff across all divisions and locations participated.

At Sim, we pride ourselves in being a good steward of the communities we live and work in. Join us as we work towards bettering our communities and our planet. Every action counts. Here’s a few to get you started:

  • Reduce emissions by using public transit, switching to an electric vehicle, walking or riding your bike
  • Reduce plastics by incorporating reusable containers, water bottles & shopping bags
  • Preserve water & decrease landfill waste by shopping local and/or second-hand
