Saskatchewan Eco Network Environmental Activism Award

Hooray for our team! The Saskatchewan Eco Network presented us with their Environmental Activism Award last night at the Green Un-Gala for their 10th Annual Saskatoon Environmental Film Festival.

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!

Thanks again to the Saskatchewan Eco Network. We’ll have a vehicle at the Roxy Theatre (320 20th St. W., Saskatoon) this afternoon during the film festival.
