June 11 Shred Day to help Sophie’s Place purchase a PADS dog

Just in time for Spring Cleaning!

June 11 is Shred Day for Sophie’s Place

Pads dogUrban Impact is very excited to help the Rotary Club of South Surrey with their Shred Day on June 11th. Our driver will be onsite at Ocean Park Safeway from 10 am to 2-pm to provide secure shredding by donation. All donations will support Pacific Assistance Dogs Society and the Rotary Club’s sponsorship of a Canine Assisted
Intervention team.

The Rotary Club is aiming to raise $15,000.00 for a PADS dog. PADS breeds, raises, trains and supports certified assistance dogs, partnering them with people living with disabilities and with community care professionals.
Intervention dogs are meant to assist community care professionals where there would be be physical, social or emotional improvement with the addition of a dog and its specially trained dog handler.

Shred for Sophie’s Place

Sophie’s Place is a child advocacy centre focused on providing specialized services to physically, mentally and sexually abused children. The PADS dog would be used to sooth children and if and when they had to go
to court. The PADS dog would be allowed in Court with the child.

“It’s really important that kids can have a place to go where they can be taken seriously, and where they can express what’s happened to them in a safe environment.”

-Sophie Tweed-Simmons, Sophie’s Place patron and namesake

Pacific Assistance Dogs Society:

“Our dogs change lives. They are more than beautiful, healthy companions, they are specially trained to aid people.”  See more at:

YVR’s Waste Wars Program wins big at ACI-NA Awards

waste warsKudos to Vancouver International Airport Authority’s (“YVR”) Environmental Team!  The team took home top prize in the Outreach, Education and Community Involvement Category for YVR’s Waste Wars program.

YVR’s Waste Wars project was launched on July 13, 2015 and ran until August 13, 2015.  

Due to the huge efforts of the YVR Environmental Team and strong participation from YVR’s partners in the programs such as Waste Wars, during the month of September 2015, YVR achieved a 53% diversion rate- the best for 2015!  Additionally, during the four busiest months of 2015, YVR diverted more than 50% of waste from landfill, which is in line with their 2015 Environmental Management Plan target.

According to ACI-NA, YVR was awarded the Outreach Award for its Waste Wars project, which was designed to increase composting from airport food and beverage tenants, while reducing overall solid waste.  YVR’s robust airport training and engagement program is truly first rate.

“YVR won an ACI-NA Environmental Achievement Award and took home the top prize for our Waste War engagement program. Thank you for supporting YVR in our submission and Urban Impact’s continued support in our diversion efforts.  We truly appreciate it!”
