Celebrate the most comprehensive single-use plastic ordinance passed by the city of Berkeley! Here's what the bill requires:
The City of Rossland passed a resolution that aims to transition the community to 100% Renewable Energy by 2050. This makes Rossland the 10th municipality in Canada, and the fourth in the West Kootenays alongside the Village of Slocan, the City of Nelson, and the Regional District of Central Kootenay to be a bold leader.
The City of Rossland committing to 100% Renewable Energy was also a “wow” moment for me. A huge thank you to the Mayor and Council of Rossland for being visionary leaders in the movement to phase out fossil fuels and transition to 100% renewable energy.
