Green Season Kicks Off Tomorrow!

Posted on April 20, 2017

APRIL 20, 2017 (CALGARY): In celebration of Earth Week, Green Calgary Association is kicking off their annual Rain Barrel and Composter Sale Season (the Green Season) this week.

For nearly 20 years, Green Calgary has hosted the sales in communities in and around Calgary, and has helped Calgarians install tens of thousands of rain barrels and composters at their homes.

While Calgarians each use an average of nearly 7,000 litres of water per month, a single rain barrel saves more than 3,200 litres per year. The impact is the same as if each person harvesting rain water were to not use a drop of water for almost 2 weeks each year.

The 2017 Green Season kicks off this Friday (April 21) in the North Parking Lot at the Calgary Zoo. On Earth Day (April 22), Calgarians can find the team at the ATB in Sage Hill and at IKEA. The IKEA event will also include environmental education and fun for guests of all ages.

Responding to demand from the community, the team will be in High River, a community still recovering from devastating floods, on May 27, 2017.

All Calgarians are encouraged to come out and learn about rain water harvesting, composting, and how they can set and achieve their own Green Goals.
