About DIG

Do It Green (DIG) is a clean tech and environmental services business that caters to special events. Whether it's a music festival, sporting event, conference or pancake breakfast, when you attend an event in Alberta, DIG wants to wow you through innovative environmental programs that include zero-waste management, mobile water, and emissions-free power solutions. Since its inception in 2013, DIG has diverted more than 50 tons of waste from the landfill and expanded throughout Alberta.

More than 50 event organizers rely on DIG expertise and equipment each year including the Calgary Stampede. During Stampede 2016, DIG composted or recycled 19 tons of waste and checked in nearly 2,000 bicycles through Bike Valets at each entrance of the park.

We are a social enterprise, which means we are structured in a way that keeps us focused on our community and environmental commitments.

The Change We Seek®

DIG's mission is to reach 16 million people through waste, water, and energy awareness programs and divert 100 metric tons of waste away from the landfill by 2020.
