Founded in 1975, a group of dedicated and environmentally conscious Calgarians came together to organize the Clean Calgary Committee, that would eventually be renamed Green Calgary. Modeled after the Keep America Beautiful Program, their mandate was to address all forms of pollution. By 1982, the group had become a registered society and obtained charitable organization status.
Great projects include Healthy Homes Calgary, an in-home consultation with families to examine ways to improve their own sustainable practices. A healthy homes advisor will address topics such as waste reduction, water conservation, energy efficiency, sustainable food options and the effect of using toxic cleaning products. Green Calgary also runs workshops, school programs and green presentations for organizations to discuss environmental issues and highlight action-oriented solutions and ideas for sustainability.
Thanks to the generousity of local businesses and vendors, guests will be treated to an array food and beverages at the Fall Festival. Wild Rose Brewery has already generously agreed to provide a selection of their delicious local beers. Prizes have been and are still being collected for a silent auction. This is a great opportunity for local businesses to create awareness for their brand, as each donated item will be displayed with a short story highlighting its local and/or sustainable attributes.
Green Calgary hopes to raise approximately $25,000, through ticket sales, the silent auction and a fund drive, with all funds going toward the support of projects and initiatives.
Any inquiries about silent auction donations or monetary donations can be sent to: email@example.com
Any sponsorship inquiries can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
