Recycling Council of British Columbia Zero Waste Challenge

Well, here we are at the Westin Resort and Spa in Whistler and are well into the conference proceedings. I am feeling very inspired, supported and at home with my recycling peers. The desire to reinvent, create, and be part of a positive change in our lower mainland world is alive and thriving among the 300ish attendees.

We started off being entertained (read inspired) by a group of kids from Brakendale Elementary School. They sung songs of “voices of nature”, change, and asked us to be responsible as they were “counting on us” for a environmentally healthy future.

I was able to manage the lump in my throat listening while listening to the lyrics and watching the school children perform.

We are very excited to continue the conference and share in the desire to make a positive difference in our world.
