We are excited to announce that the Reconciliation Canada events are going green and are striving to minimise waste and maximise recycling. We are pleased to say that we have appointed Green Chair Recycling to help us achieve this.
Here are some simple things that everyone can do to help us achieve zero waste:
Bring a reusable drink bottle or cup to use throughout the event.
Why not take it a step further and bring your own picnic set with reusable plates, knives and forks?
Only take what you need! A lot of event waste is from uneaten food and unwanted leaflets and giveaways. Ask for a taste, or a half portion or just say no.
Recycle, recycle, recycle! Clearly labelled recycling stations will be located throughout the events and will be supervised by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Take all your waste and recycling to these stations.
Sign up to be a recycling volunteer with Green Chair Recycling (www.greenchairrecycling.com).
