The Environment Team is made up of a diverse group of people with many different interests that intersect in different ways. What brings us together is a desire to protect the environment.

Many of us are organizers, peace marshals, or participants in the marches and rallies against pipelines, tankers, and climate change. As well, we organize film screenings, educational events, and fundraising dinners in support of various social justice, Indigenous, and environmental groups.

There are two dedicated groups within the Enviro Team: the Zero Waste Team, and the Wild Salmon Action Team

Zero Waste and
Everyday Climate Action

The Zero Waste Team challenges consumption and disrupts consumer culture by hosting events and workshops on Ethical Eating, Composting, Reducing Food Waste, Buy Nothing, Make Smthng, Zero Plastic, Mending & Alterations, Slow Fashion, and much more.
