TORONTO — Quesada Burritos & Tacos has launched its #GreenEveryday campaign until April 30 for Earth Month, in support of the David Suzuki Foundation and a more sustainable Canada.
The brand will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of its Roasted Veggie Burrito or Quesadilla to the David Suzuki Foundation, marking the second-consecutive year of donations.
Additionally, participating Quesada franchisees across Canada will engage in cleanups of green spaces in an effort to be part of the solution at the local level and influence the communities in which they operate. Other sustainable practices Quesada has implemented include the transition from aluminum burrito wrapping to biodegradable paper and from plastic bags to brown paper bags for its takeout orders.
“Being an outdoor enthusiast, I’m passionate about the environment and how we can all work together to leave a better Canada for future generations,” says Steve Gill, founder of Quesada Burritos & Tacos. “Encouraging Canadians to do what they can for the planet is all part of our journey toward sustainability as a company.”
“Working toward a more sustainable Canada can start with small changes in our daily routines like walking instead of driving, or taking a re-usable bottle with you everywhere you go. Together, we can make a big impact,” says Suzuki. “Quesada is a great example of how companies can work toward being more sustainable while encouraging their customers to do the same.”
