Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project – St. John’s, NFLD

Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project - St. John's NFLD

The Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project kicked off in St. John’s with another employee tree planting initiative. Molson Coors employees + Dave Evans of the city planted over 350 tree seedlings and 30 large trees at Elks Park. The team planted from 9-noon and then relaxed with a cold beer over lunch.

The Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project is our commitment to positively impact the Canadian environment in communities from coast to coast, incorporating tree plantings, urban greening projects and shoreline cleanup efforts.  In 2011, we will plant 100,000 trees in communities of need across Canada.

Nothing better than planting a thousand trees and then relaxing over a cold beer right?  Well, that’s just what we did today.

Molson Coors employees across Canada participated in a key program called the Molson Canadian Red Leaf Project – a commitment to positively impacting the Canadian environment in communities from coast to coast, incorporating tree plantings, urban greening projects and shoreline cleanup efforts.

Toronto Team

We had seven events take place from 9:00 – noon in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Moncton (St. John’s coming up end of May).  350 employees rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty planting the first 1,000 trees of the eventual 100,000 that will be planted in communities of need across Canada throughout the summer.

Each of today’s planting locations across the country was chosen strategically based on needs in the local area, as the trees planted will provide long term benefits such as watershed protection, providing habitat for local wildlife, reducing noise pollution and beautifying the area.  Photos from all the events
