What makes a superhero? A secret identity? Evenings spent doing good deeds and fighting injustice? But what if Superman spent his afternoons pulling invasive weeds? Or if Batman installed solar panels on the bat cave? Environment Lethbridge is seeking nominations for youth, businesses, individuals and organizations.
From now until September 30, 2016, Environment Lethbridge is asking for
nominations for its Green Superhero project.
“We are looking for individuals, youth, businesses and organizations who are taking actions to help the environment in Lethbridge,” explains Kathleen Sheppard, Executive Director with Environment Lethbridge. “Whether they are big deeds or small ones, we want to recognize and celebrate our local green superheroes who are doing great things for Lethbridge.” The Green Superhero project is an evolution of the Green List, which was hosted by the City of Lethbridge from 20102013.
During that time, more than 100 individuals, youth, businesses and organizations were recognized for their commitments to sustainability. This year, Environment Lethbridge has taken on the task of recognizing positive sustainable action in Lethbridge through the Green Superhero project.
“We are already seeing nominations come in for Lethbridge’s Green Superheroes,” Sheppard says. “We have Eagle Eye Braydee, who is renowned for his ability to spot litter, Dew Weaver, who shares her knowledge of local food with children in our community, plus several others.” The full list of nominees is available on Environment Lethbridge’s website.
All the green superhero nominees will be invited to an event to recognize their accomplishments in October.

The Green Superhero project is sponsored by London Drugs and Exteriors by Leroy and Darcy.
