Educational Outreach


Green Chair is excited to offer free educational outreach services for all high schools, colleges and universities in the BC Lower Mainland area.

Are you looking for a passionate speaker to get your audience motivated about sustainability and recycling? Green Chair would love to get involved with your group, school, university or anyone who would like to learn more about sustainability and zero waste! We started the company with the amazing vision of not only providing sustainable services for people and businesses, but also educating and inspiring others so they can do the same thing!

Our Educational Outreach team are very flexible and are able to tailor their workshop/ presentation to your audiences needs; from small kindergarten classes through to international waste management conferences and everything in between!

We also offer regular seminars and training sessions to help people achieve zero waste in everything they do. Our upcoming seminars are listed here. Are you looking for something different? Then simply contact us with your suggestions.
