A Message from the Nipigon Eco-Team

We would like to extend a special thank you to Ontario Power Generation for generously supporting our plastics program.

Do your part to reduce plastic/glass waste in our town by using refillable water bottles, or choosing items with less packaging.

Nipigon’s mini water bar is available for use at local events.  The water bar is meant for outdoor use, and must be hooked up to a potable water source.  Please contact Suzanne Kukko for more information.

Let’s all do our part to keep Nipigon beautiful.  If you have any suggestions on other green initiatives for our town, contact the Nipigon Eco-Team 887-3135 ext 26.
