ZooShare: Canada's 1st Zoo-Biogas Plant

as seen in:

It's imperative that we give a sh*t! - Rita and Jeff Rayman, ZooShare members
ZooShare is a fine example of community power in action โ€“ raising local dollars to make a local impact through the development of a renewable energy project. - Bob Chiarelli, Ontario Minister of Energy
The Toronto Zoo recognizes its responsibility to act as a leader in environmental sustainability...We have supported the ZooShare biogas plant project from its inception and will continue to support less food waste in landfills, less greenhouse gas emissions and, hopefully, a more stable environment for Canada's wildlife."- Dolf DeJong, CEO
I jumped at the chance to make ZooShare a reality as a way to demonstrate to our policy makers and communities how we can implement sustainable energy solutions. - Marisa Sterling, P. Eng
It gives me hope for the planet. It's a great green solution that we can stand behind. - Denice Wilkins and John Wilson

Everyday, truck loads of organic waste end up in landfills, releasing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to climate change.


Our biogas plant is turning poo from the Toronto Zoo and inedible food waste into renewable power for the Ontario grid. A by-product of this process is fertilizer, which can help to grow local food.
