Green Event Services - Waste Education BoostR
Green Event Services
Green Event Services is founded on the simple goal of creating a better tomorrow. In 2012, Colin Smith started Green Event Services to minimize the incredible amounts of waste created at his favourite events like Sled Island, Market Collective and Canada Day. Fast forward 3 years later, Green Event Services has participated in over 150 events; diverted 90 tons of waste from the landfill; employed over 100 community members with living wages; and engaged over 1 million event attendees with waste reducing experiences. For the second year, we have the honour of a nomination in the Environmental Stewardship category for the Calgary Chamber Small Business Awards.
Green Events Services works with event organizers to provide positive waste reduction solutions. We supply user-friendly recycling and compost stations. Our all-star Green Team handles, sorts and weighs all collected material from the stations to ensure maximum diversion from landfills. We deliver on-the-fly education to participants as best we can, but sometimes the battle against the waste takes over. We want to do more to help people recycle and compost with confidence. We see this as an opportunity for an Education Boost(R)! That’s where we need your help!
