We are happy to announce that this SEPTEMBER will be Sustainable Orillia Month!
Sustainability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions are a year-long effort, but we like to give you extra motivation each year during a designated Sustainable Orillia Month. This year, if possible, we are eager to connect with you in person for events that will showcase our mission and the good work being done by all our Sectors. With September just around the corner, we want to give everyone a heads-up on what to expect throughout the month!
We will be highlighting agriculture, eating local, and talking about regenerative farming at the one-day Fall Fair at ODAS Park on September 11th. That same weekend (11th and 12th) we will host our second Electric Vehicle (EV) Demo weekend at the Orillia Square Mall. If you are interested in EVs or the newest technology coming from Ford in the all-electric F150 and Mustang, come to the Orillia Square Mall to connect with local drivers and EV experts.
For the first time, in addition to the EV display outside on the weekend, we will be holding a week of “sustainability” at the Orillia Square Mall. Each day, inside the mall, we will be talking about a different sustainability topic and how Orillians can make positive changes towards preserving our quality of life and protecting the planet.
Look, also, for Sustainability Orillia displays in downtown Orillia during the month—in the Peter Street arts district and on Mississaga Street.
These are just some of the exciting things coming this Sustainable Orillia month. For the full calendar of events be sure to check out our website (www.sustainableorillia.ca) and social media for ongoing announcements to see all the ways you can get involved!
Plan now to join us for Sustainable Orillia Month in September. And plan, as well, to make—or renew—your personal commitment to a more sustainable lifestyle for you and your family.
