Keep it Simple

Are you interested in learning about housecleaning without harm, or safer options for personal care products? This presentation helps decipher what ingredients are in your products, how to make safer choices, and an opportunity to make your own personal care product.

 

Waste Reduction and Recycling Education

Concerned about how much garbage is being created? Interested in learning about how you can reduce your waste and live a more sustainable lifestyle? Confused about what can be recycled in Thunder Bay, or don’t know why it’s important to recycle? We’ve got the perfect presentation to help your students, your workplace, or your organization learn all the ‘ins and outs’ of waste reduction and recycling in our region. 

 

Composting

Composting is a simple way to reduce your curbside trash by as much as 30%, provide a great source of natural fertilizer for your lawn and garden, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., the warming of our planet!). During this presentation, you’ll learn the basics of both indoor (vermicomposting) and backyard composting, including all the troubleshooting, tips, and tricks you’ll need.

 

Beeswax Wrap Workshop

Let's face it - plastics are major environmental concern. Plastics are filling our waterways, landscapes and landfills. Recycling is not the answer. Join this presentation to learn about our plastic habits and what actions you can do at home. We finish with a step-by-step DIY beeswax wrap workshop!
