Reduce waste for the benefits of composting

Join in for a talk with Nadine Rake on ways to reduce our waste including the benefits of composting.

This talk is hosted by the Cranbrook Climate Hub as part of the monthly series – Climate Fridays, which occur at noon on the last Friday of each month.

This Friday (Oct. 28) at noon, bring your lunch and join and leave according to your own schedule. Talks are one hour but generally run over with discussion for those who want to chat more.

“It took me 27 years to realize the impact that my one life was having on our planet, and about one hour to make the first change. That change quickly brought about a whole new lifestyle and I became dedicated to do right by the planet,” said presenter Nadine Rake.

“Analyzing my household trash, I noticed that most of what I was throwing “away” was organic so my focus became composting.

“With years of educating myself and others, I quickly became a self-proclaimed compost nerd, and realized it was much more important than I first realized. Joining local initiatives and committees, such as the RDEK’s Solid Waste Management Plan Advisory Committee, I learned what opportunities exist locally to reduce our waste, and reduce our impact, one compost bin at a time

“Having lived in the Kootenays since 1995, I quickly found the love and respect for our natural spaces. But it wasn’t until 2013 that I really noticed the impact that my one life was having on our planet, and to lessen that impact, I started by changing one thing. I am a teacher in Cranbrook, a writer, blogger, self-proclaimed compost nerd, and mother of two.”
