Colin's Story

Colin Smith lives and breathes local business. This isn't only because he is a 4th generation Albertan who has loyally lived here his whole life, but because it is through his business that he works tirelessly to improve his local community. In 2012, Colin started Green Event Services to solve the challenge of incredible amounts of waste created at his favourite events like Sled Island, Market Collective and Canada Day. Fast forward 3 years later: through Green Event Services, Colin has participated in over 75 events; diverted over 100 tons of waste from the landfill; employed over 80 community members with living wages; and, has engaged over 600,000 event attendees with waste reducing experiences. Calgarians have come to consider his waste diversion stations an event staple - but Colin is not stopping here! He is working on deepening his ability to extend his positive, waste diverting reach to other areas within Calgary's community.


Why Calgary?

"Calgary is a great place to do business thanks to the supportive business, art and cultural communities that exists here."
