Compost Winnipeg

Green Action Centre is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, based in Winnipeg and serving Manitoba. We are a registered charity, governed by an elected community board. We promote greener living through environmental education and encourage practical green solutions for homeowners, workplaces, schools and communities. (You may have met us as Resource Conservation Manitoba before we changed our name in September 2010.)

Our primary areas of work are green commuting, composting and waste, sustainable living and resource conservation. Programs and outreach are supported by donations from individuals, grants from foundations and governments, and sponsorships. On Earth Day 2016 we launched our social enterprise Compost Winnipeg.
