Yahoo! Annual Stampede Breakfast Waste Diversion Up Again

calgary-stampede-waste1 214 kilograms of waste diverted from the City of Calgary’s landfills

For the third year in a row, London Drugs has partnered with Green Calgary and Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association (RRROCA) to green its annual community Stampede breakfast. Through various reducing, recycling, and composting strategies, 89.3% of all waste was diverted. This is up slightly (0.3%) from last year and up 10.3% from the first year of the partnership. Yahoo!

The greening of the breakfast helped prevent 214 kilograms of waste from going to the City’s landfills including:

  • 75 kilograms of organics (now that’s a lot of pancakes!)
  • 3 kilograms of beverage containers
  • 5 kilograms of mixed recycling diverted (paper plates, cutlery, etc.)

Over 4000 guests attended the event for pancakes, music and sustainable Stampede fun.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
