Toronto’s Live Green Perks program supports eco-friendly shopping and local businesses
The City of Toronto’s Live Green Toronto has upgraded the Live Green Card to a new app-based rewards program called Live Green Perks that offers members exclusive access to discounts and deals at local businesses, and invitations to special events and contests. Businesses offering deals and discounts via the app include local restaurants, retail shops and attractions that offer eco-friendly products, services or experiences.
“The Live Green Perks program makes it easier for people to make eco-friendly choices and support local businesses, which is a win for the city and the environment,” said Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon (Ward 32 Beaches-East York), Chair of the Parks and Environment Committee. “It’s also a great way for Torontonians and visitors to get out there and explore what our amazing city has to offer.”
Anyone can join the program and membership is free. The Live Green Perks app can be downloaded for free for both iOS and Android devices. Members simply show their app at the time of purchase to redeem their perks. A physical card is available on request.
Live Green Toronto will also plant a tree for every 20 deals an individual claims in the app. Trees will be planted in the Live Green Forest in the Smith Ness Forest Conservation Area in the Niagara region.
Previously known as the Live Green Card, the City’s perks program has over 50,000 members. Live Green Perks is a component of Live Green Toronto, a program that promotes sustainable living. More information about Live Green Perks is available at http:www/livegreenperks.ca.
