Valentine's Day Contest: Share to Win

Valentine's Day, like many holidays, can be an event surrounded with over-consumption. As waste-aware Edmontonians, Master Composter Recyclers have great ideas to keep waste at a minimum while still making the holiday a special time.

Looking for inspiration? Check out Kristin's interview with the Weather Network

What are you doing to reduce your waste around this holiday? Submit your ideas to win a romantic dinner for two!

One MCR helped their Office Ecology Team organize a freecycle table to re-gift items for Valentine's Day. 

How do you reduce waste when you romance your Valentine?

To enter the contest:

What's the prize?
Win a $100 gift certificate for Live Local. You can this as a romantic dinner for two at:
          Accent Restaurant & Lounge
          Blue Plate Diner
          The Dish Bistro
          Sabor Divino Restaurant
          Upper Crust Cafe
          Wild Tangerine
This contest is only open to volunteers who are graduates of the Master Composter Recycler Program. Thank you for showing Edmontonians creative ways to reduce waste.


  1. wow! nice prize guys......
    i wish i could enter, but i got NOTHING!
    someday i'll have a valentine to spoil rotten with a dinner at some fab local resto.....till then i'll just have to wipe away my tears with my reusable cloth hankie, and dream of the day i have a sweetie to call my own!

  2. No roses! No purchased cut flowers, ever, actually. I cannot think of much more wasteful - they wilt and die no matter what you do! And ever since flying over the fields of flowers in Colombia I've been horrified at the waste of daily flights to ensure those flowers are fresh-cut.
    Insteadmy spouse and I favour some experience together. Many years we stay in and make heart-shaped pizzas from scratch. With him cooking the sauce and me rolling the dough there're lots of opportunity for connection.

  3. Thanks for your great ideas. We'll be sharing them all for Valentines Day next year. Congrats to Roger for winning the prize!
