Join us for this educational webinar to learn how to divert materials from landfills, reuse salvaged materials and to make energy-efficient changes to our homes.

--- Did you know? ---

- Construction is the leading cause of waste in North America
- The equivalent of 80,000 homes worth of construction & demolition waste goes into the dumpster every year in Canada

Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver are hosting this educational webinar as part of our Sustainability Build Week to share what individuals and businesses can do when building, renovating and decorating to divert materials from ending up in landfills and instead become part of the circular economy.

Our panel of experts will be sharing what options are available from deconstruction, to upcycling, green building best practices and the small changes you can make at home that will have a lasting impact.

We all need to act now to protect our planet, join us to learn more about what you can do at home.
