If you haven’t heard the Tim Hortons sustainability story you’re not alone – this is an organization that does things quietly.  But don’t mistake quiet for ineffective; whether you’re talking about coffee, cups, community or culture – Tim Hortons is a true sustainability leader.  Join us on May 17th as Tim Faveri walks us through this Canadian success story.

Attendees of this event will learn more about the Tim Hortons Coffee Partnership and…
