Figuring out our show topics is beginning to become difficult, IN A GOOD WAY, because we have so many options & so many amazing guests coming up!! 

This week, we've decided on a wonderful woman, local here in London Canada, but WORDLY in deeds.  Maryanne MacDonald is an ECO force to be reckoned with!!  At age 62, she announces her occuption as 'Organizer of Waste Free World'.  How great is that??!!!

Two years ago, MacDonald and a friend started the London plastic bag project, trying to get Londoners to stop using plastic bags. A few months later she partnered with the organizers of some local summer festivals in figuring out how to reduce the amount of waste generated from the London festivals. That summer the London Green Festivals team, led by MacDonald, helped divert half the waste generated by the festivals from the landfill.

MacDonald said the more she read and learned about the destruction of the environment, the more she felt compelled to do something for future generations.

What are you doing, Western Women & friends, to save the World??  Email us at iamthewesternwoman@mail.com or call into our show this week & let us know!!
