Green job site now powered by green electricity

WorkCabin', Canada's green job site, today announced it has become the first career site to be bullfrogpowered' with 100 per cent green electricity.

Toronto, January 2, 2007 -- WorkCabin', Canada's green job site, today announced it has become the first green job site to be bullfrogpowered' with 100 per cent green electricity.


Bullfrog Power' is the only 100 per cent green electricity retailer in Ontario that sources electricity exclusively from wind power and low-impact water power producers who meet or exceed the federal government's EcoLogo standard for renewable energy.

Because of its investment in green renewable energy, in one year alone WorkCabin's site, servers and office base will reduce their emissions footprint by an estimated 4.79 tonnes of CO2 (the primary gas that causes climate change).

"We know using the word 'green' to describe what we do and who we are carries a major responsibility to show real action," said WorkCabin founder Gregg McLachlan. "As Canada's green job site, being green is our job too."

As a Bullfrog Power' customer, WorkCabin' joins the ranks of many well-known organizations and companies, including Mountain Equipment Co-op, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, WWF-Canada, Earth Rangers, Canadian Wind Energy Association, The Pembina Institute, Greenpeace and RBC Financial Group.

"We're honoured to be showing leadership in taking this environmentally responsible step," said McLachlan. "Organizations and companies can now choose to post career opportunities at a professional job site that has an environmental policy that matters."
