Presentation: 1:30 p.m.

Q&A: 2:15 p.m.

Reep Open House: 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Presenter: Amanda Baker

Amanda has lived in this Region for most of her life, and had always recycled, but she wanted to do more. After discovering the Zero Waste lifestyle, she quickly learned that there was much more that she could do to reduce what she sent to the landfill, and has been working towards that goal ever since. She now knows that making small changes as she moves toward a Zero Waste lifestyle can have a huge positive impact on the environment!

The Zero Waste lifestyle movement is gaining momentum as proven by the recent straw and plastic bans adopted by various cities and businesses. In the Waterloo region, this movement also progressing as evident by the upcoming Zero Waste Bulk grocery store who is currently crowd-funding on Indiegogo for their opening in fall 2018.
