Whistler events are getting a little more environmentally friendly.
Last week, the Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE) announced the launch of Zero Waste Heroes, a new social enterprise aimed to help local events and their attendees minimize waste.
“The idea came from when we were having zero waste stations at the farmers’ market,” said AWARE’s executive director Claire Ruddy. “We were constantly being approached by multiple event organizers asking for help and advice about how to reduce their waste. This has been a continuing conversation.”
