WRW is celebrated nationwide from October 18-24. During this week, the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) should be at the forefront in classrooms, offices and homes. The Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) provides information on how we can reduce waste along with this year's poster 'Too Good to Waste'.
For great ideas on activities, to request information, register your events, and receive WRW resource kits as well as posters, visit www.rco.on.ca/wrw.html. Any schools wishing 3Rs or composting demonstrations can call 705-778-1922.
Grassroots tips you can include: lug-a-mug to events where you expect to have a beverage; take your own reusable bags to grocery and retail stores; donate unwanted items to organizations that can use them; recycle diligently; and, if you are not already doing so, learn to compost. The Future is Rs.
