Greenlife wants to thank the many dedicated volunteers who worked on our ever-improving kiosk on our last sidwalk sale of 2007! Big thanks to Carol and Laine, who after staying up till 2am the night before, still managed to stand for 4-6 hours hard selling environmental ideas. We had a lot of fun because performances at the side walk sale were going on at the same time, and the MC paid us special tribute!!! It is a good feeling to know our effort is appreciated. But of course, nothing would have worked if we did not have an attractive LOGO. So thanks to Christine and Butlau for their creativity and advice which we will continue to harness. – shuyi

Kiosk in Chinatown – St-Jean-Baptiste

Green Life kiosk

The wind, while extremely mild, once again pushed our kiosk on the ground on several occasions, until I (Cedric) decided to pick a nearby metal trash can and stick to the back of the panel. Can’t compare apples and oranges, as apples were twenty cents per unit, versus around thirty cents per unit for tangerines, so I opted for the former to give out for the game that Laine did for us.

We also figured that black is perhaps not the best color to attract attention, and Sandra’s roommate was saying that she could help us out. My own mother, who was passing by Chinatown that afternoon, thought that we could’ve used more green, and nice pics (work on the visuals a little bit – for something fun too). I bought a bottle of Ombrelle 45 for $17.77 at the nearby Proxim pharmacy in Chinatown, and really needed it for the six hours spent under an undying sun…

Kiosk in Chinatown – 27/05/2007

Kiosk in Chinatown - 2007-05-27

We had our first kiosk day on May 27th, a Sunday, to promote Green Life. According to Claude Martel, the Sierra Club of Canada’s Quebec Chapter director, the first time that you organize a kiosk, it takes four times the amount of time that you think that it would take, and the second time, it takes half of that, and then, after a couple of times, you don’t feel it anymore.

It was a very gray day, and the rain finally drove us away. We resisted the moisture pretty nicely, but we would’ve just wished that the wind didn’t blow our panel away.
