Compostables 101: The hard-to-breakdown facts

Ever wondered just how those so-called compostable forks and cups break down, and just how compostable they really are? Now’s your chance to learn the dirty truth.

Compostables 101 will include a range of speakers including UVic student researcher Noah Snell, zero-waste expert Paula McPhee, and industrial composting professionals Jack Vanderbasch and Chester Phillips. A chance to ask questions in a Q&A panel will follow.

Humble Magnificence | Hidden Coastal Wilderness

Today is the opening day for Fortune Gallery’s newest exhibit, Humble Magnificence.

  • Where: Fortune Gallery, 537 Fisgard Street

  • When: 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Where: Victoria City Hall, 1 Centennial Square
