Breakfast of Champions
Legacy Guitar and Coffee House
Our annual breakfast for Champions of Sustainability provides an opportunity for businesses, schools and community groups to come together to network and to discuss some aspect of sustainability. If your business, school or group is a Sustainability Champion, please click into our survey by March 31 to let us know what topic interests you.
Our Amazing Champions
Whether it's greening Cochrane Light-Up with compostable cups (Cochrane Eco Centre, Green King Ltd.), hosting a community-building gingerbread house competition (Kitchen Boutique, Great Things In Store, Poor David's, Trailblazers), keeping Cochrane's heritage alive via the first ever Cochrane Santa Claus Parade, reducing paper towel waste in Cochrane's public buildings (Town of Cochrane), or facilitating discussion regarding a community permaculture project (Provisions Permaculture), our Champions are providing leadership in sustainability. And these are just a few of the many things we're aware of!
Our Amazing Citizens
Individuals who have signed on as Sustainability Citizens do what they can to make a difference in the way they live their everyday lives. Occasionally, a Citizen will do something public -- like organize Cochrane's annual Tea with Local Producers, bringing local food growers and supportive Cochrane residents together! This year's event is planned for Saturday, April 18, so keep your eyes open for posters around town!
Sustainability makes sense!
The Cochrane Eco Centre,
Sustainability Champion through the Town of Cochrane, asked us to help spread the word: Rates have increased, making it more important than ever that we do our part to divert recyclables from the waste stream. So many of you do a great job of this already. Please encourage your friends and neighbours to follow your lead!
