Join us for Waste Reduction Week 2019!

Waste Reduction Week (WRW) is an environmental campaign that builds awareness around the issues associated with consumption and waste. The campaign encourages a transition to a circular economy and promotes positive actions associated with waste diversion and natural resource conservation.

Every year Green Action Centre paves the way for Waste Reduction Week in Manitoba with exciting events, challenges, and a wealth of resources for schools, households, workplaces, and individuals.



Waste-Free Lunch and Mini-Documentary Screening!

Join us for a lunchtime mini-documentary screening of CBC Marketplace’s “Food waste: How much food do supermarkets throw away?” followed by a short collaborative discussion on waste reduction! Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch or pay $5 to partake in a “waste-free” lunch (package free). We will be serving a vegetarian spread of soup, bread, dips, and veggies. Dairy free and vegan options available.

Time: 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.

Location: EcoCentre Boardroom (303 Portage Ave., 3rd floor, Winnipeg, MB)

Cost: FREE to attend the preview. Bring your own waste-free lunch OR a $5 cash donation for a vegetarian lunch!

Build-A-Bin Vermicomposting Workshop!

We’ve partnered with Greenpeace Winnipeg to offer another session of the oh-so-popular vermicomposting workshop! This small-scale indoor composting system is cheap, easy to maintain, and perfect for those in apartments or condos. Whether you just want a refresher on the basics, or have never heard of vermicomposting before, come out to our workshop to walk away with everything you need to know (and a bin of your own, if you choose*)!

Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Fort Rouge Leisure Centre (625 Osborne St., Winnipeg, MB)

Cost: This is FREE presentation! *However there are material costs for supplies if you are looking to build your own bin ($26.25-$44.50)
