Greek Fest 2019 Goes Carbon Neutral

Our 2019 Greek Festival partnered with the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and the event was able to reduce its carbon footprint to achieve a carbon neutral status.

We would like to thank Mr. Mike Xenos, one of our parishioners who helped the festival calculate its estimated carbon footprint from the gas, propane, diesel and electricity used over the course of our 11-day festival. That calculation will translate into 120 trees planted locally across the Rideau Valley watershed, adding to Eastern Ontario’s forests and natural spaces and offsetting the event’s carbon footprint over the next 40 years.
