Calgary-based container pick-up social enterprise, the Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research, is experiencing success with its recycling venture.
To date, the social business has collected hundreds upon thousands of containers and created jobs for many people. Vecova aims to continually support the needs of people with disability by employing them and helping city residents to recycle more.
Bina Sitaram, a 40-year old former senior garment technician in the fashion industry, has created a social enterprise that affords young students lessons in healthy living by holding gardening, cooking and arts and crafts sessions.
