Did you know?…
In Canada, more than 1.2 BILLION pounds of waste is generated from gift-wrapping and shopping bags each year.
This holiday season, every Canadian will throw away an average of 110lbs of garbage.
Lethbridge disposes more waste per person than both the Provincial and National average. Each year we produce enough waste to fill the water tower 90 times!
What can we do?…
If everyone in Canada wrapped just three presents in reused paper or gift bags, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 hockey rinks!
