While I was on a work trip in Samoa recently, I was invited to speak to the Waste Management and Pollution Control Division from the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP). This team is responsible for waste management in 14 Pacific Island countries… a pretty big task! It was exciting to be able to share with them the success stories that Greener Footprints has had in Rossland and Squamish B.C. By the way… flip flops are standard footwear in Samoa – my kind of place!
