CWF and OCWA launch 'I don't flush' Campaign
The Clean Water Foundation (CWF) and The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) – in conjunction with York Region, the Region of Peel and the Health Product Stewardship Association – launched the ‘I don’t flush’ public awareness campaign on June 7 at the Windfall Ecology Festival in Newmarket. To celebrate the launch, OCWA and CWF were joined by TVO’s The Water Brothers who snapped photos with festival attendees throughout the day.
This campaign is based on the already established A Prescription for Clean Water program that encourages Ontarians to return unwanted and unused pharmaceuticals back to the pharmacies where they can be properly disposed of.
