‘TIS ALSO THE SEASON FOR GIVING LIGHTLY TO CLIENTS

A number of sustainability-minded companies are giving Be the Change DVDs to their clients and employees as a holiday thank you. Companies in Ottawa and Toronto have ordered batches of DVDs, taking advantage of the discount for orders of 11 or more (only $14 per DVD, plus taxes and shipping).

Does your company give year-end gifts to staff or to valued clients? Are you tired of giving plastic trinkets of unknown origin and environmental impact? Be the Change is packaged in a recycled cardboard sleeve, has no shrink-wrapping and may be just what your clients need to get them thinking about contracting your services in the New Year!

Call 613-730-0870 or email us for batch orders.

ORGANIZE YOUR OWN SCREENING

Be the Change is an upbeat, 55-minute film that makes the case for “living lightly”, not as a guilt-driven sacrifice, but as a joyous celebration of life that encourages us to take stock of what we really value and wish to see more of in our lives.

If you would like to share this hopeful message with your family, friends and community, please consider hosting a screening/discussion in your town, neighbourhood or living room. For more information, call David Chernushenko at 613-730-0870 or email us.
