Environment Lethbridge Set To Take Off Next Week


LETHBRIDGE: A new non-profit organization named Environment Lethbridge will launch on January 31st.


The organization will be increasing awareness and engagement, working towards removing barriers that keep people from adopting sustainable practices, and advise City Council on environmental issues. Residents are also encouraged to get involved by volunteering with Environment Lethbridge or by donating funds.


Steering Committee Chair Tom Cain talks about how they plan on making the group as accessible as possible, "There's different opportunities that might come up for a storefront operation where people could drop in and get some information. There will be a website capability where they can go there and ask their questions."


Cain also noted that they want to put the spot-light on environmental initiatives in our city, which are far too often being overlooked, "When they fixed up the Enmax Centre, they recycled all sorts of the bricks and everything that they could possibly do, but nobody heard about that. Very few people know that Park Place Shopping Centre is the greenest shopping centre in Canada. There's well kept secrets all over the place, we need to get the information out and get more momentum in our own city."


The group was formed by a group of concerned citizens after working with the Environment Committee for City Council to develop an outline of what a sustainability-focused organization could look like.


The official launch of Environment Lethbridge will take place at CASA from 3:30 PM-7 PM. To register for the free event, visit www.environmentlethbridge.org.
