FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OTTAWA April 11, 2007 Ottawans who care about their community and the environment can now easily find green resources, organizations and opportunities across the region.
People and Planet today announced the launch of GreenOttawa.ca, "a comprehensive gateway to everything green in the Ottawa-Gatineau region".
While the environment is high on many people's minds, often we don't know where to turn. "Green Ottawa serves as a one-stop-shop for anyone who wants to help build a greener, healthier Ottawa", said Green Ottawa's founder, Peter Blanchard.
"When we started on this project, we had no idea how many wonderful things we would find. It's truly inspiring", said Blanchard. "All sectors of society are represented: business, nonprofits, government, media, education."
Green Ottawa will be of value to anyone who wants to help build a greener home, community or world. It includes green groups and organizations, green businesses, events, volunteer and employment opportunities, parks and outdoor activities, education programs, green government and politics.
Green Ottawa will also serve as an important resource for teachers, journalists, business people, community leaders and government.
