EARTH DAY

Wednesday, April 22

Earth Day is a large international environmental event that is celebrated every year on April 22.  It’s a day to think about the Earth and ways to reduce your environmental footprint.

This year will mark the launch of Earth Day Every Day, a campaign through which Canadians can use online tools to help them reduce their carbon footprint. The campaign is being promoted by Earth Day Canada, a national environmental charity. It allows people to track how their actions help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and to share their activities with others. The goal of the initiative is to help Canadians reduce their carbon footprint by 20 per cent by the year 2020.

Toward Zero Waste Events

Events can generate a lot of waste, which can be both costly and have a negative impact on the environment.

A Zero Waste Event is any event that works towards minimizing waste generation and maximizing reusing and recycling to achieve the greatest possible waste diversion.

Event organizers have the most influence in minimizing waste at public events. Thoughtful, strategic planning for waste collection at an event will help achieve a toward zero waste goal. Event organizers can also encourage other key stakeholders to participate in waste reduction, composting and recycling
