We all know littering is wrong. Then why is there so much of it? And what can be done to reduce its trail? Come be part of an interactive experience unlike any other with litter expert and CCO member, Sheila White. A game to test your littering and recycling knowledge, participatory music that entertains as it educates and Sheila’s presentation on what is being done to fight litter here and around the world will leave you more aware and inspired to help the goal of lowering the overall rate of littering. A presentation suitable for all ages.

We will also explore a profile of litter, littering and litterers, and why we should care. We will debunk some litter myths and carve out effective litter reduction strategies, while establishing total recycling habits. We will discover best world practices and developments and next steps in Ontario.
