Thank You Ottawa for Another GREAT Great GREEN Glebe Garage Sale

Thanks to Ecology Ottawa volunteers and especially to all of the people of Ottawa who visited the Great GREEN Glebe Garage Sale last weekend. It was the greatest ever.

Here’s why:

  • We raised money and are sharing it with the Ottawa Food Bank
  • We collected unwanted items from at least 175 donors across the city, by far the most ever for the event
  • We had the dedicated support of more than 125 volunteers, without whom the event would not have been possible
  • We diverted more stuff from landfill than ever before (tonnes!)
  • We supported more than a dozen wonderful community organizations by contributing our leftovers to them and their clients
  • We turned Darth Vader into an environmentalist and hosted the single largest swing dance flash mob in garage sale history (anywhere!)
  • We finished our site clean up in record time
