Interview Opportunity - Toronto businesses keeping cool during the heat wave
Wednesday, August 4th 2010 1:00:39pm
Toronto businesses keeping cool during the heat wave -teams on the street today in Corso Italia (St. Clair and Dufferin) and Korea Town (Christie and Bloor)
As Toronto sizzles through another heat wave, businesses are turning up the air conditioning to keep their employees and customers comfortable. The Conservation Council of Ontario (CCO) is reminding business owners to keep their doors closed while they cool down. While an open door might look inviting, it also wastes energy and significantly increases cooling costs.
Street Teams and Chris Winter, Executive Director of CCO, are available for interviews.
Mr. Winter can speak to the following points:
• The importance of energy conservation in fighting climate change
• Ways to keep your business cool without wasting energy
• CCO's Door's Open Campaign
Street teams can demonstrate how they educate business owners about the benefits of saving energy by keeping their doors closed.
