Happy Waste Reduction Week!
There is a lot happening for Waste Reduction Week at Green Action Centre! Compost presentations, 4R depot tour, and more. Check out our website for more information.
We are happy to welcome a few new compost partners this week. West End Cultural Centre has had a compost program for cups, paper towels, coffee and food scraps for a while now and we feel lucky they have chosen us to pick-up their compostable waste. Hoping to learn from an established program and promise to keep their bins sparkling clean!
Also welcome to ACI Manitoba. It was a blast from the past to walk into their office yesterday. Formerly the office of Canadian Environmental Indigenous Resources, they have a beautiful space in the Exchange totally furnished with green building materials, including a composting toilet! I spent a lot of time in the early 2000's in this office planning and meeting about green building projects with what we called the "Manitoba Green Building Group". This informal group eventually became Sustainable Building Manitoba.
Finally, Health Sciences Centre is hosting a compost challenge for their offices during Waste Reduction Week. We've been helping HSC pilot composting at Guildy's Eatery for just over a year now and more recently their cafeteria. Looking forward to seeing this program continue to grow! Find us at the HSC wellness fair on Thursday October 20th.
