A home for Okanagan sustainability
"By sharing our own experiences and local information, we hope to empower you to make smart consumer choices and adapt your lifestyle to improve your overall sustainability." - Shayne Meechan, Co-founder and Executive Director Green Okanagan
A guiding focus of Green Okanagan is breaking down the zero-waste lifestyle in an approachable way. Zero-waste living is not a zero sum game, there are small changes we can all make that add up to a big difference in the overall sustainability of our community and planet. We want to help you discover how simple, affordable, and fun zero-waste living can be, by sharing our tried and true solutions anyone can implement. Our blog will be a source to discover simple DIYs, insightful resources, and general green fun!
