The holiday season is a wonderful time to celebrate with family and friends, but it can also generate a lot of unnecessary waste. Here is your chance to share ideas on how you reduce waste over the holidays and enter to win prizes.
The City of Richmond has launched the Holiday Waste Think Tank on LetsTalkRichmond.ca. From now until Dec. 12, share the following types of ideas and comment on others’ ideas for:
• Reducing the amount of gift wrap used
• Minimizing food waste
• Giving gifts that don’t involve packaging
• Transforming textiles or other household items into great new gifts
Each idea submitted will be entered for the chance to win a holiday prize pack including reusable items. The four prize draw dates are Nov. 21, Nov. 28, Dec. 5, and Dec. 12.
