Waste Reduction Week Manitoba
October 19-25, 2020
What is Waste Reduction Week?
Green Action Centre is excited to present Waste Reduction Week in a Manitoba context. Throughout the week we will be highlighting the impacts waste has in our world, celebrating those who are working hard to reduce their waste, and providing practical solutions to help Manitobans reduce their waste.
The week will include free composting webinars, at-home documentary screenings, an opportunity to nominate your favourite “waste reducers” for prizes, and tons of resources via our blog and social media.
Follow along on social media and our blog for resources and tips about reducing e-waste, textile waste, plastic waste, and food waste. We will also be sharing resources about swapping/repairing and sharing.

Did you know that over 1/2 of all food produced in Canada is waste? In Manitoba a large portion of this food waste ends up in the landfill where it produces methane, a GHG much more potent than CO2.
