YQG Green EXPO
October 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Free Go Green Event in YQG
We invite you to join us for the 1st Annual YQGgreen EXPO. This event officially celebrates Waste Reduction Week in Canada — the country’s most successful waste reduction public awareness campaign engaging Canadians each year since 2001.
During October Canadians are encouraged to learn about the circular economy, celebrate our individual and collective efforts, embrace circular solutions, and encourage others to take action.
The YQGgreen Networking Group is a local group of small business owners, social enterprises, non-profits and community-based organizations that work collectively to make a difference in our region by promoting environmentally and socially sustainable practices. The YQGgreen Expo will be held at WFCU Centre on Saturday, October 14th from 9 AM – 4 PM and will be available free to the public.
The Expo has four parts – to allow for a mix of outdoor recycling, indoor booths, educational panels and networking:
1. Indoor Green Business Exhibitors:
Up to 50 local businesses will showcase their “Go Green” ideas, services and products – as well as some healthy living and people who support the YQG Green mandate.
*Outdoor EV Society Windsor-Essex members will have their cars on display to answer questions you may have about driving EV cars.
2. Environmental Expert Panel Discussion:
Hosted by WEtech Alliance, this engaging event brings together pioneers in green business startups and experts. Innovation, ideas, and inspiration will be the order of the day!
3. Community Recycle Drive Thru & Drop Off:
We invite the public to drop off their unwanted items to support our community partners and our environment. You will find organizations such as Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority, Diabetes Canada, Windsor & Essex County Crime Stoppers, Habitat For Humanity Windsor-Essex, Soles4Souls, and more.
