Moving Towards Zero Waste Pilot Project with Christ Church Anglican:
The Moving Towards Zero Waste (MTZW) effort at the church was of great value.
I have to ponder this a bit, and I’ll have some recommendations for the church and our Friends of Waste Reduction (FOWR) group.
I’d like to find out a bit more about the Green Team at Christ Church.
Maybe one of us should be on that team; if it they want us & it fits with church policy.
I can see now why they say visiting groups are their Achilles heel. For FOWR, it will be a gift.
Using Christ Church as our pilot project was very fortuitous.
The MTZW project impact will be much broader through the church; a perfect community access point. YEA!
Be well, Lindy Iversen
Who are we?
We are Friends of Waste Reduction (FOWR), a volunteer group connected with the Development & Environmental Services Department of the Municipality of Meaford.
- To work in harmony with the municipality on waste reduction, and
- To create, test & implement inspiring & practical initiatives that support waste redirection & reduction; initiatives that may be voluntarily embraced by groups, businesses, churches & event organizers.
We are a non-political, non-confrontational grass-roots team, founded on the benefits of taking action to help turn our waste stream into a resource stream.
This is a journey of moving towards zero waste; we welcome others to join in and support this journey.
Why did we seek out Christ Church Anglican to be our pilot project partner in the development of the Moving Towards Zero Waste Recognition Program?
It is very important to work with an environmentally mindful group as we develop this public recognition program.
The Christ Church Anglican congregation shines in the community as an example of working in positive & concrete ways to do its part in taking care of our environment. Your existing recycling and composting efforts complement our aims. We’re developing a ‘good, better, best’ public recognition program that will draw attention to community leaders, like Christ Church Anglican. ── An inspiration to others.
Thank you for your willingness to be part of this partnership. We look forward to a productive association.
