Eco-events, literacy events & environmental solutions in progress

-- Quote of the Day --

“ …As a business owner you have a responsibility to your shareholders in regards to properly manage the business not only top line revenue but also the costs and part of the costs is waste management. …(Businesses) should engage in a waste management/waste reduction program not because it makes you feel good but also because it has a positive influence on your ability to manage not only your business but your profitability. …The (Renovos) program takes waste from the coffee industry – coffee is the 2nd largest next to oil in the world! Many of these roasters bring in pallets and pallets of these burlap bags of beans. …The main roaster that we have today discards 4-8 tones of burlap a month. So we work with that material (to create products that) …promote the use of reusable products.”
~ Douglas Farquhar – Feb 5, 2009

-- Impressive Reforestation Project --

I was intrigued by a notice in the Weekender Newspaper for Forests for Tomorrow 2009 Program (, which rehabilitates damaged and threatened forest regions has at least nine projects this year from clearing invasive brush to evaluation programs to tree-planting. I was thrilled to see their ambitious plan of planting more than 700,000 tree seedlings throughout the Kootenay, Boundary and Okanagan regions of BC (Canada).

Thank you Forests For Tomorrow!
