Sustainable Surrey

Sustainable Surrey

For the first time, the BIA has been able to bring on a Sustainability Intern to work on developing a environmental sustainability strategy in Businesses within the Downtown Surrey Area. This summer our Sustainability Education Intern, Maureen Solmundson, has been hard at work researching and compiling a tool kit in order to improve sustainable business practices.

This tool kit, entitled Sustainability Starter Kit: Sustainable Surrey Starts Here, has been designed for small to medium businesses in order to engage and encourage them to adapt environmentally sustainable business practices. Each tool kit would come equip with: Toilet Tank Dye Tablets, a Kitchen Aerator, A Toilet Tank Bank, a Smart Power Strip, and CFL light bulbs, all contained in a reusable package. Solmundson’s goal is to lay the groundwork for environmental sustainability practices in businesses to continually be built upon. She hopes to acquire 200 Sustainability Starter Kits to send out initially.

With the launch of this free starter kit Solmundson hopes to both engage and educate small business owners on the importance of
environmentally sustainable businesses practices further contributing to the creation of a sustainable Surrey.

The DSBIA has applied for a number of grants to fund this initiative and hopes to hear by the end of the year whether the project will go beyond the planning stage.
