As two of the directors of Zero Waste Canada, a national non-profit organization promoting Zero Waste in Canada and around the globe, the duo decided on a low impact road trip as a means of promoting sustainable transportation and Zero Waste lifestyle choices in a fun innovative way. “As a grassroots organization promoting Zero Waste, it is important for us to connect with regular Canadians living across Canada. A road trip allows us to reach people in their own communities and homes. Bolt Across Canada allows us to show that it is possible make lifestyle changes that reduce our environmental impact...and you can still enjoy life,” says Barbara Hetherington.
