Enviro Fest 2006 – A Sunny Day Full of Goodness

June 10 @ Savage Beagle


From June 4 to 10, it was Environment Week in Canada. This year's theme was "Celebrating and Protecting the Natural Environment". For the occasion, Hilltrip participated to Enviro Fest in Whistler. The day was sunny and many people came to the Mountain Square to visit the booths relating to the theme. Hilltrip and other organization such as AWARE, HillbillyWax, Surfrider Foundation, Slow Food, Whistler Hemp Company shared the square with bigger players like Whistler Blackcomb and VANOC.

Global Warming Information Booth Corrine Galarneau is showing that temperature is rising!

During the day, many people came to Hilltripís booth witch educated about climate change and how it affects our region. At night, Hilltrip organized The Official Enviro Fest After Party at Savage Beagle, where money was raised towards Hilltripís Carbon Offset Program, which fights global warming trough a raffle including over $1,000 worth in prizes from Evolution, Ultimate Distribution, Whistler Bungee, Lush, The Clearance Center, Gauge Clothing, Willyís Java Coffee, Solarice, Showcase, Cyber Web, The Grocery Store, Whistler Hemp Company and Amsterdam Coffee.

One of the projects that Hilltripís Carbon Offset Program will be funding is The Bio-Diesel Project. This project is helping Kate Marcotte to convert her car to bio-diesel and raise awareness about how it is to live and travel with a bio-diesel car by publishing her stories on TerraTrip.org, a new website launched by Hilltrip on June 10th, the same day as Enviro Fest. You will be able to read Katie's adventures from converting her car to cooking her low emission fuel here throughout the summer.

Hilltrip Enviro-Fest Party was sponsored by the Whistler Brewing Company. Back on the shelves and sharing the same values for the environment as Hilltrip, this local company was happy to let everyone taste their beer.

A big congratulation to Corinne Galarneau, Hilltripís new intern, for her great work in organizing the after party and the raffle.
