On today’s show we had some big wins! The RTDNA awards were handed out this weekend and the CTV News Atlantic team won four awards! Kelly and the CTV News at 5 team accepted the Trina McQueen Award for their ‘Grand Adventure in Grand Pre’ broadcast. And our cameraman JW Campbell came in third during his body building competition this weekend - the Atlantic Classic Championships! He really enjoyed his meal afterwards, a hamburger and fires. Congratulations everyone!
We also got a visit from Kate Pepler of the Tare Shop. The new Halifax business is aiming to be the first zero waste store and café when it opens in the fall. So Kate shared some tips that everyone can use to help reduce their global footprint. There are lots of easy changes people can make to be more environmentally friendly – the one we found really interesting is reusing coffee grounds for a natural exfoliant! Kate said making small changes in our daily lives make the task of going plastic free the easiest.
