Moving Towards Zero Waste Statement of Purpose:
We are Friends of Waste Reduction (FOWR), a volunteer group connected with the Development & Environmental Services Department of the Municipality of Meaford.
Our aims are twofold:
- To work in harmony with the municipality on waste reduction, and
- To create, test and implement inspiring & practical initiatives that support waste redirection & reduction; initiatives that may be voluntarily embraced by local groups, event organizers, churches & businesses.
We are a non-political, non-confrontational grass-roots team, focused on the benefits of taking action to help turn our waste stream into a resource stream. Everyone is welcome to join in & support our aims.
This is a journey of working towards zero waste; we do not know when we will get there.
