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 provide the Park Royal Spirit Community Garden. Located behind Osaka Supermarket and Staples on the upper level rooftop space at Park Royal South, the garden currently has 17 planters.
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 Melina Dimitriadis, Marketing, Tourism & Events, if you wish to secure a spot on the Spirit Community Garden waitlist at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.923.4716.
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.
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.
We have set up an organic waste diversion program in our new food court, Picnic. Simply leave your tray and all garbage at the marked stations and our maintenance staff will sort the waste ensuring organics are composted and recyclables recycled. There are also public recycling receptacles throughout the shopping centre so you can recycle too.
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 maintenance staff uses only earth friendly cleaning products. That way when the water is drained, it is not adversely affecting our environment
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.
