How we help
Reep Green Solutions is an environmental charity serving Waterloo Region and surrounding areas since 1999.
We help you live sustainably through home energy efficiency, water conservation, waste reduction and healthy yards services.
Our mission: To empower the community with the practical tools, knowledge and capacity for action to make sustainable living the norm.
Our vision: We believe that by acting today, we can leave our children a community that is more resilient, vibrant, caring and sustainable.
Some of our programs include:
Project Neutral in Waterloo Region: Project neutral’s award-winning carbon calculator helps you understand your personal climate footprint and what you can do about it. Get practical actions that are personal to you and take action on climate change.
Zero Waste Challenge: Every October our community pledges to reduce their waste to only what will fit in a 1L mason jar. The challenge makes each of think about the waste we create and how we can reduce it.
ClimateActionWR: A collaboration between local organizations focused on supporting actions and developing new opportunities that will lead to local GHG emissions reductions. ClimateActionWR is led by Reep Green Solutions and Sustainable Waterloo Region.
Green Infrastructure: including community depave projects, tree planting and the RAIN program. RAIN encourages property owners to soak up rain on their properties in order to reduce flood risk, protect local waterways and qualify for stormwater credits in Kitchener and Waterloo.
Reep House for Sustainable Living: Our LEED® Platinum certified demonstration home and community education centre. This smart-insulated, water-wise century brick home is located at 20 Mill Street downtown Kitchener and is open for public tours and workshops.
EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations: In-depth evaluation of building envelope, ventilation and heating/cooling systems with incentives for homeowners for completing retrofits and renovations.
Several of our services are unfunded and your support will help us continue to serve our community. Reep Green Solutions is funded by a combination of donations, partnerships, grants and fee-for-service programs.
Thank you for helping to make our work as an environmental charity possible! Together, we can help our community live sustainably.
