With only 4 days left in our project (and at the risk of upstaging our final weigh in on Wednesday) the Clean Bin Project was in an article in the Globe and Mail today!
A national publication like this definitely reaches a scope of readership that is outside our regular network of blog readers, but it’s good for us to get outside our ‘bubble’ of support. I keep wanting to check back in on the Globe’s website to see what comments people are putting up – both positive and negative.
So far, people have had some good points about how there is still a lot of landfill waste coming from industry etc, and that residential garbage may only be a ‘drop in the bucket’. That’s definitely true, but why not cut down where you can and go from there?
I could go on and on about why we started this project and how it relates to the bigger picture and how we are definitely still supporting the economy by buying local food and spending money on local experiences, but maybe I should just let you read the article for yourself.
You can check the full article out here.
Thanks to Candice Vallantin for contacting us, and getting the Clean Bin Project out there with a great article. If it stirs up any sort of discussion at all, I’d consider it a success.
