Recycling @ Powwow

Anishinabek of the Gitchi Gami Podcasts show

Summary: (click the title to hear audio file) The Anishinabek of the Gitchi Gami brought recycling to the Fort William First Nation annual traditional powwow for the first time. Several people are interviewed about the issue in this podcast. With the help of our partner, ReCool Canada Inc., we were able to provide powwow-goers with the option to recycle - and people made the most of it! 75 kg of recyclable material was diverted from the waste stream. We also organized this mobile recycling depot for the 2007 National Aboriginal Day powwow, that took place the week previous (June 21, 2007). The FWFN powwow took place June 30 - July 1, 2007, on Mt McKay on Fort William First Nation. For more info, contact ecostewards.fwfn(at)
