Earth Week Cleanup

Kicking off our 2023 Earth Week events, come join Sustainable Cobourg’s Youth Ambassador Tovan Lew for the annual ‘Keep the County Clean’ Challenge!!

Meet us on Sunday, April 16th at Peace Park Cobourg (at the end of Forth St) to help clean up the spaces we all enjoy.

We will provide the gloves, bags, and SC volunteer t-shirts for the event. If interested in joining the community photo happening outside Victoria Hall at 11:45 April 16th, individual supplies will also be provided there.

Know local high school students who may need some volunteer hours? Here’s a fantastic opportunity!

Let’s show our commitment to community health and environmental well-being by coming together for this amazing show of community strength and collaboration!

Adopting sustainable practices, whether large or small, can have significant impacts in the long run. If every office worker in the United Kingdom used one less staple a day by using a reusable paper clip, 120 tonnes of steel would be saved in one year.

So far in 2022, Depave Paradise has depaved 15 asphalt pavements! Since 2012 this group has completed 80 projects across 32 Canadian cities covering 76,384 square metres of unused paved surfaces into beautiful community green spaces with native grasses, flowers and trees. What an amazing sustainable action to capture carbon, a Greenhouse gas, and create a welcoming ecological ‘paradise’ for our monarchs and bees and of course, for us. Well done. This is a project of Green Communities Canada.
