Peterborough Mitsubishi understands the value of keeping Peterborough sustainable. Whether it's letting locals make vehicle purchases with the Kawartha Loon, keeping our neighborhood clean, supporting worthy community organizations, or participating in local events, we're there.
Did you know ONE cigarette butt PER LITRE of water can KILL the fish in a stream? Cigarette butt litter is a growing problem everywhere. We need to raise awareness about the consequences this has for the health of our ecosystems, wildlife, and our own health.
Join the Butt Blitz Event to help make a HUGE environmental impact across Canada! All you have to do is collect cigarette butts from local parks, beaches, shorelines, streets, and other public places. Count them as you go and give them to your location's event coordinator on May 7th who will ship them to TerraCycle Canada for recycling!
To find your nearest event location and the name of your coordinator visit the website The Butt Blitz

This September, Peterborough City and County will be overflowing with a bounty of good food - fresh produce, local meats and cheese, maple syrup, honey and more – and the community will celebrate its first-ever Peterborough Local Food Month.
The City and County of Peterborough have officially declared September as our community's annual Local Food Month. Festivities planned for the inaugural season have been organized by Farms at Work and Transition Town, along with a hard-working group of volunteers. Community members can participate in many different ways – from taking local food tours, to visiting restaurants serving local dishes, buying at farmers markets and joining the fun at the Purple Onion Festival at Millennium Park on Sunday September 20th.
This is just a first taste of the activities available throughout September. Challenge yourself to find out how easy it is to support local farms and farmers, as well as the food businesses that process and distribute food grown close to home!
Pick up a free comprehensive Local Food Guide at any local farmer's market in the County, or at selected locations selling local food. Visit the official website at localfoodmonthptbo.ca, like Local Food Month on Facebook.
