[GreenYes] St. Sylvester ZW Event and Website
Greetings GreenYes!

Take a look at the web page and zero waste event
that has been planned by school kids in Scarborough, Ontario.

The site is unique in that it offers a petition that asks
provincial legislators to require producers to take responsibility
to create and implement earth-friendly packaging, a tenet
that is at the heart of zero waste.
There is some great artwork by the kids on the site.

We will be including a link to their site from our
Kids Recycle! area on the web and in our event calendar
and links area. (Remember, it's not too late to add your
own Zero Waste event, so visit our calendar under the
community menu.)


Please send any questions directly to Roy Fernandes
at the email address below.
