These are the procedures we use in the O. W. Toad Office.

** Note to charities seeking endorsements and donations**
Solicitation packages, while an important part of fundraising efforts, generate a tremendous amount of wasted paper. Please send only ONE request per year and also consider offering an email option for future solicitations. Any company sending more than one request annually will not be considered for donations.
We are trying to avoid it if possible. When we must fly, we buy Carbon Neutral Credits. We realize that tree planting alone is not the best option and we prefer companies with other initiatives, such as solar power installations.
Please keep your cats indoors at dawn and dusk during spring and fall migration. Consult the following websites for information on how to protect avian species that are threatened by pollution, and most especially, by manmade structures. Between 1-10 million migratory birds collide with windows in Toronto each year. In addition, the constant lighting in tall buildings in urban centres often confuses night-migrating birds that mistake the lights for the natural light of the moon and stars. Programs such as “Lights Out Toronto!” have put changes in place which include programmed lighting systems and encouraging employees staying late at work to use desk lighting and to turn off ceiling lights near windows.
** Most recommendations are based on Canadian products and services.**
