Yahoo! Annual Stampede Breakfast Waste Diversion Up Again
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!
