Do It Green helps recycling at Calgary events

Do It Green helps recycling at Calgary events The co-founder of a local company helps turn the simple act of throwing something away into an opportunity for education and engagement.The business is called Do It Green, also known as DIG, and grew out of Leo Rotchild’s work to take sustainable waste, compost and recycling services to various Calgary events.At each function, DIG’s environmental educators station themselves at garbage and recycling stations, assisting attendees dispose of their waste, food and recycling, since navigating the various bins and signage can be confusing.When you’re at a public event, you’re going to be producing some kind of waste, so when DIG’s staff talk to people on an environmental level, they instantly connect and pass the information on to others.And, with the City of Calgary moving toward banning all paper products in its landfills, sustainable waste management will become increasingly important for businesses.Some of DIG’s clients include the Calgary Stampede and the Calgary Folk Music Festival.For more details: [email protected] and at 403-389-5367. by Marianne Jeremy Posted May 3, 2015 9:25 pm MDT Last Updated May 29, 2015 at 6:13 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
