Innovation is a key to forward progress. In this two-part series, Urban Impact explores an idea to help communities reduce and reuse. In a recent webinar, Urban Impact participated with the Coast Waste Management Association discussing a fairly new concept in recycling called Share Sheds.  

With Zero Waste and Circular Economy on all our minds, a Share Shed may become an important piece to helping solve the complex puzzle of reducing waste and helping limit the number of items sent to landfills.

For many us, at some point in our lives, we have had a male figure who has made an impressionable impact on who we are, what choices we make and how we approach work and life. Whether this man is a biological Father or not, every June we celebrate the men in our lives, who have influenced our world, big or small. 

On May 27th, 2023, Pacific Assistance Dogs (PADS) raised over $6,000 and shredded nearly 4,000 kilograms of confidential papers!  Urban Impact was proud to help this wonderful organization generate much needed fundraising dollars for their cause.

If your organization is considering ways to raise funds, a shred event with support from Urban Impact may right for you. 

Mother's Day is a time to celebrate and honor the incredible women in our lives who have played such an important role in shaping who we are. For many of us, our Mothers are the ones who have taught us the value of hard work, compassion, and perseverance.
