Across Canada in municipalities like Halton Region, the Canadian Diabetes Association is leading the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to find a cure.
This fight is made possible in part through strong alliances and through the generosity of partners such as The Regional Municipality of Halton. Specifically, the Association is supported annually through Halton Region’s Non-Profit Diversion Credit for Reuse Subsidy
Each year in Halton Region, Clothesline® diverts approximately 1 million kilograms of clothing and household items from the landfill. This translates into a savings of 16 million kWh of energy and reduces our donors’ carbon footprint by 2.2 million kilograms of CO2 emissions. This energy savings is enough to power more than a thousand households for an entire year.
When donating to Clothesline®, you are not only helping the more than 9 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes – you are also helping the environment.
