Earth Day at Fortius: How our facility strives to be environmentally friendlyApril 22, 2019 | by Lucy Fox
At Fortius, we are celebrating Earth Day by reflecting on the various ways our facility works towards sustainability and protecting our environment.
Here are several ways Fortius strives to reduce our environmental footprint.
Recycling and composting
Within the facility, we have recycling bins and compost bins in our staff areas, Bistro and in the lobby to ensure our Fortius family are able to make the environmentally-friendly choice when disposing of items.
Within our Bistro, we also provide compostable and recyclable to-go containers.
We use low-flow water throughout the facility and have automatic taps and toilets to help save water. In our Fitness & Performance Centre, the showers are on a timer to ensure as little water use as possible.
We also use water bags on our trees to limit sprinkler time.
In our gym, we have replaced 120 light bulbs to energy-saving LED bulbs — we are also working to replace all the bulbs throughout our facility!
