  • Sewage Ain’t Sexy

    Sewage Ain’t Sexy   . . . a monthly TREA blog about the essential conversations we need to have about sewage treatment in London. Of course talk is cheap if not followed up by action  . . .   1. “A’s” for Alberta. Ah, Alberta. Mention the province around environmentalists and you are sure to hear strong opinions.  Oil, tar sands/“oil sands”, pipelines vs rail, carbon tax, and GHG’s will all come to mind. But this post is ...

  • Are you ready to celebrate a Waste Free Holiday?

    How are you wrapping your presents this Christmas? With Saturday comics that are recyclable or with traditional wrapping paper that isn't? What types of gifts are you giving? Ones that end up in landfill in the future because you gave things that were neither needed nor wanted or are you giving ones that create lasting memories such as piano lessons or skating lessons or maybe a special time spent with yourself? We cannot truly celebrate any ...

  • How an Intern Can Make a Significant Difference to the Environment

    Last spring, while finishing my third year at Western University, I decided to participate in an Internship as an extension of my academic program. While sorting through the different placements available to the Media, Information and Technoculture students, one in particular jumped out at me. The Thames Region Ecological Association (TREA) was offering to hire a Media Intern for the summer.

    As a Londoner for four years now, I’ve tried to soak up as many amazing (and FREE!) festivals at Victoria Park as my busy school and work schedule has allowed. This year, however, I was lucky enough to land a job that has put me smack-dab in the middle of all the excitement (and sometimes chaos). I must admit, summer festivals look a lot different behind the scenes – with all the meetings, management, set-ups, take-downs, ...
