Sooke film night: Zero Waste Sooke

A summary about the Transition Sooke Awareness Film night event.

This new Transition Sooke/Awareness Film Night co-venture met for the first time at the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre on Feb. 25.

Inishoge Farm’s Steve Unger has stepped up to coordinate the citizen’s initiative, which will meet again at the SRVC on March 26 at 7 p.m.

A public education campaign promoting the 5Rs of the zero waste movement – Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot in that order – is a priority. A proper compost facility, yard-waste depot and free store for unwanted items may well be good fits for Sooke. And there’s talk that a community open space meeting dedicated exclusively to waste management issues would be timely later this year.

If you want to join this inspiring initiative, please contact us! A website is in the works, but for now please visit the organization’s Facebook page.
