Many news media, including newspapers and radio are picking up the benefits of outdoor living via the Green for Life campaign.

Green for Life:
An industry initiative for YOU

Green industry members: get on board an exciting promotional initiative, led by Landscape Ontario.

Dubbed Green for Life, the goal is to INSPIRE your customers with the beauty and benefits of horticulture, and CONNECT them with Landscape Ontario members. Participation by industry members is key — members will use their brands along with the new Green for Life visual identity and marketing materials to distinguish themselves and spread the word. Touch points will include truck and job site signs, retail signs, tags and event marketing. Green for Life is customized for all green industry sectors.

The best way to participate in Green for Life is to join LO, and get involved with a chapter or sector group.

New website launched
Central to the campaign is the revitalized public website, www.landscapeontario.com. It assists the public in finding products and services, and provides extensive and appealing information on all things green. Thanks to the experts comprising LO\'s membership, the site features unique resources: a vast number of award-winning landscape photos and gardening information that is specific to our area. The site also gives members the opportunity to share their expertise through video clips and other media — to connect and inspire.
