How do we actually proactively and mindfully reduce our WASTE?  The amount that goes to landfill is tragic.

We’ll start off with a video on how we are all leaders and can step into action simply and easily.

Our guest speaker is Sonam Bajwa, a Solid Waste Planner with the Regional District of Nanaimo.   She  is involved in their innovative, waste reduction, circular economy approach to waste management.  Sonam will share Nanaimo’s story on how they turned their landfill problem into a thriving marketplace, their successes, challenges and what’s next.

We will hear from some local businesses and a Collingwood resident about how they are sifting, sorting and adapting what we do with stuff we no longer need or use.

And finally, our Consumption & Waste Team lead, Mary Jo McArthur-Scott is going to take us on a deep dive into her garbage.

Lots of time for questions, answers and how to take simple steps to make a difference!
