BEST ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATION
TORONTO ENVIRONMENTAL ALLIANCE 30 Duncan, 416-596-0660 We’d hate to imagine what this city would look like if the Toronto Environmental Alliance hadn’t been formed back in 88. Its heavy-hitting research and persuasive lobbying efforts helped stop the dumping of toxic chemicals down our drains, ban pesticides on lawns and put green bins on every doorstep. They’re dynamo detectives when it comes to sniffing out loopholes that might be open to abuse and digging up dirt on things like Ontario’s plan to burn rather than recycle used tires. And where would we be without TEA’s annual Smog Report Card? (Hey, these are the folks who wrote Toronto’s original Smog Action Plan.) On air quality, energy, transit, waste, water and toxics, TEA has our backs.
