Blog Guelph: GlobalTox 15th Anniversary

I'm very pleased to help GlobalTox share the news of their 15th Anniversary - partly because Mark and Ron are friends of mine and they've created a terrific, international business that has stood the test of time. But also because they model what to me is good community spirit within Guelph and Wellington County.

For starters, GlobalTox is a founding partner to the Waterloo-Wellington Children's Groundwater Festival - which since its inception in 1994, has hosted over 50,000 students in grades 2 - 6. This week long festival which aims to increase and support greater awareness of water at a grassroots level with interactive activities, demonstrations and exhibits, has become even more important as community water issues now take front page news.

Then there's the GlobalTox Award for Excellence - available to students registered at the University of Guelph. Among other Guelph based charities and organizations that benefit from GlobalTox help are Guelph Food Bank, Guelph Minor Baseball, Guelph Marlins Aquatic Club and Michael House plus a selection of national and international organizations.

Happy Anniversary GlobalTox! They claim crystal is the ideal gift for the 15th but in this world of the wild web, I think blogging is even better.
