The calendar, produced by Green Manitoba in partnership with Manitoba Hydro, Manitoba Conservation, Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth, the City of Winnipeg, Miller Environmental Corporation, Tire Stewardship Manitoba, the Manitoba Association for Resource Recovery Corp. and the Manitoba Education for Sustainable Development Working Group, is available at a wide variety of outlets across the province including:

“By following the advice found on the calendars, Manitobans can collectively protect the environment and help affect positive change in our communities,” said Blaikie.
