VOLUNTEER POSITION

Position: Director
Campaign: Danforth Reduces
Location: Toronto Danforth, Ontario

The Danforth Reduces BYO (“bring your own”) campaign is seeking new leadership.

An exciting opportunity to take over an existing project that’s ready to go. This pandemic has only placed a temporary hold on reusable programs; they will be back!

Campaign’s background: Early in 2019, Roncy Reduces was the first to start a BYO campaign in Toronto, and soon thereafter other neighbourhoods joined in. All of these new locations are independently run by volunteer members of their respective communities such as Beaches Reduces, Cabbagetown Reduces, and St. Clair Reduces. During the summer of 2019 Danforth Reduces launched and has since signed up 25 businesses. Each business places a BYO sticker in their window indicating that reusable containers are accepted, or they support other waste reduction activities (i.e sell secondhand clothing, repair electronics).

The lead should be a self-starter because the growth of the program is self directed; interested in building and maintaining good relationships with new and existing small business owners; and possess a passion for and knowledge of waste reduction strategies.

Danforth Reduces is a member of the Green Neighbour’s Network (GNN) and Future Grounds (David Suzuki’s Blue Dot initiative); has previously collaborated with other east end Reduces’ groups; and is a member of the Toronto Reduces Network, which frequently strategizes with Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA)’s waste campaign director.

Work involved:

  • Reaching out to businesses along the Danforth to grow the BYO program
  • Managing social media accounts
  • Volunteer recruitment and management
  • Answering inquiries
  • Designing and writing original content

Areas of strength:

  • Organization
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • A personal practice of reusing and reducing

Danforth Reduces’ coverage area is from Broadview Ave. to Victoria Park, including four Business Improvement Areas (BIAs). Ideally, this role is filled by someone who lives nearby or regularly visits The Danforth. The position will remain vacant until filled.
