Looking for a way to have fun and to help out the environment? There is a lot to do and learn when it comes to being sustainable. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

LOVE FOOD HATE WASTE

WASTE REDUCTION WEEK

PUMPKIN RECYCLING

Did you know the average Canadian throws away $1,100 of food annually?

October 21–27, 2019, is National Waste Reduction Week, a week dedicated to encourage residents to be mindful of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of consumption and waste. Reducing waste is an important part of our community’s goals in the Sustainable Kamloops Plan.

Did you know you can compost your Halloween pumpkins by taking them to a City yard waste site? Let your pumpkin give new life as soil by bringing it to a City yard waste site for composting. Remember to remove any candles and decorations prior to drop-off.

Wasting food hurts the environment and costs you money, but this problem is easy to solve. You can start by making small changes to reduce waste—plan your meals, only buy what you need, and use all your food up before buying again. These actions will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change. Quick tip: Use your freezer—it is the easiest way to preserve food. Learn more at Kamloops.ca/LoveFoodHateWaste

Be sure to follow @CityOfKamloops on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram for National tips, or visit Kamloops.ca/ WasteReduction to discover tips on how to reduce waste all year long.

Beginning November 1, look for a pumpkin drop-off sign at the following locations: • Cinnamon Ridge Compost Facility • Bunker Road Yard Waste Site • Barnhartvale Yard Waste Site For more info, visit Kamloops.ca/Compost

2-8 PLAYERS | 60 MINS DIFFICULTY LEVEL: HH AGES 8+

THE TALLEST TOWER

You’ve been on Santa’s “Naughty List” for a while now, but this Christmas you have a plan to fix that. Tired of getting lumps of coal year after year, you come up with a plan to infiltrate Santa’s workshop and write your name in his good books.

2-8 PLAYERS | 60 MINS DIFFICULTY LEVEL: HHH

PANDEMIC

2-8 PLAYERS | 60 MINS DIFFICULTY LEVEL: HHHHH

Long ago there was a mighty Sorceress who ruled over all the lands. She was obsessed with her reflection in mirrors and her own beauty. She became so obsessed that she locked herself inside the tallest tower of her castle. There she practiced dark magics and over time, lost her mind to them. Eventually her psyche cracked and all the magic she controlled exploded, engulfing the tower in a powerful curse, banishing her and the tower to the mirror realm. Rumour says that if one can journey into the mirror realm and find the Sorceress’s hand mirror, the origin of all her magic, you could break the curse once and for all.

The players are agents and the world’s last hope against a viral threat that turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. This epidemic was released by an unknown terrorist group and the top scientists still cannot come up with a cure. You’ve traced the source to a lab and your team breaks in at night in hopes you’ll find a cure for this apocalyptic event.

In a dystopian future the government has fallen and all crime is legal. You’ve been on the run for months, every time you think you’re safe you hear the sounds of chainsaws and revving engines. Your friends and you come across an abandoned building, you feel uneasy about going inside but the sound of your pursuers is getting louder and what could be worse than the people we’re running from?

EXIT Kamloops is the ideal team building experience. Each theme takes place in a different setting. To successfully escape EXIT Kamloops, your team must discover clues and solve puzzles to progress you through the story and the mystery of each room.
