Saskatchewan Eco Network Environmental Activism Award
As you well know, we have all worked tirelessly to get the co-op going in Saskatoon over the last several years. Since last February, we’ve coordinated the purchase of our 2 vehicles and started to develop our membership base around the Broadway area, which includes the Nutana, Buena Vista, Haultain and Varsity View neighbourhoods.
Of course, our main goal is to reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Saskatoon, as well as other vehicle ownership costs and by-products. Carshares in other cities have shown that every carshare vehicle available can take 5-15 privately owned vehicles off the road. In fact, we’re already responsible for GHG emissions reductions of over 1000 tonnes!
