Climate Change

Share your ideas on climate action in Saskatoon!

The following information was gathered from the City of Saskatoon's Low Emissions Community Plan page:

The City of Saskatoon (City) is currently creating a climate action plan that will identify how we, as a community, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and respond to the local causes and effects of climate change. The plan will guide our actions and investments as a City, as well as outline ways the City can support community initiatives.

30 Day Waste Challenge

"Did you know 58% of residential waste, and 40% of multi-unit garbage, is made up of food and yard waste? The lack of oxygen in our landfill means organics break down slowly and they produce methane, which is a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide."

Our home participates in quite a few types of composting. Our compost story for #yxetalkstrash this week includes grasscycling, vermicompost, green bin and backyard composting.
