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.
- 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
