Celebrating August Pride Parade

In Vancouver B.C., the Pride festival is celebrated from July 28th to August 6th. The culmination of this celebration is one of the most iconic events for Pride; The Pride Parade held on Sunday August 6, 2023.

In part one of Shred Sheds, we learned that a Share Shed can help communities reduce and reuse unwanted items through a local share program, similar to a lending library. 

If managed properly, a Share Sheds can provide an excellent opportunity for a community to benefit from an eco-friendly trading post.

A successful model for a Share Shed requires a few key components; committed volunteers or assigned staff members, well-defined operating hours and guidelines and the importance of location.

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.
