GREEN CALGARYCategory: Environment, Partners
Since 1978, Green Calgary has been a leading urban environmental charity supporting Calgarians in living a more sustainable life; helping them take effective environmental action in their homes, work places, schools, and communities. We’ve worked with tens of thousands of Calgarians in leading a greener lifestyle because we know that only by working together can we ensure a healthy city and ultimately a healthy planet.
How we live, work, and play has significant impacts to our natural world – the water we drink, the air we breath, the land that sustains us. And we believe that being an environmental steward is one of the most important roles we can have as human beings inhabiting this planet. So how can we live, work and play in such a way that allows our planet to survive and even flourish? It takes ALL of us to be more conscious, more mindful, more responsible – and that’s what we’ve been helping tens of thousands of Calgarians do every year since 1978. Every day we are approached by Calgarians wanting to do better, be greener, live more sustainably. And it continues to inspire the work that we do.
For over 35 years, Green Calgary has sought to address a range of pressing urban environmental issues including pollution, waste management and resource conservation. As the nature and understanding of these and other issues has evolved over the years, so too has Green Calgary’s focus, programs and approach. Every time we’ve been able to introduce green practices to a mainstream audience, we’ve moved on with the ever present hope that one day Calgary won’t need us to exist because we are the greenest citizens living in the most sustainable city in the world.
