I Don't Flush
The GLIN April Site of the Month is I Don't Flush, a public awareness campaign from the Ontario Clean Water Agency and the Clean Water Foundation, in conjunction with the Regional Municipality of York Region, the Region of Peel and the Health Product Stewardship Association. This clever campaign asks the public to return their unused/unwanted medications back to the pharmacy as opposed to flushing them down the toilet or drain, or throwing them in the garbage.
Bringing the issue to the forefront, the I Don't Flush campaign features an onslaught of support from notable Ontarians including: ET Canada's Rick Campanelli, TVO's The Water Brothers, TSN's Cabbie Richards and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion, amongst many others. The campaign encourages the public to 'not flush' their unused pharmaceuticals in a fun and somewhat cheeky tone. Check it out today!
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
